“The Kid Should See This”….a fun blog for rainy (and snowy!) days

Things We Love: Summer “Down-Time” Activities

My kids are solidly entrenched in their summer schedules…staying up later than normal, sleeping in past 7:30 (if I am lucky), and plenty of afternoon sun to splash around in the kiddie pools and slip & slides that seem to be multiplying in the backyard.
