I'm really excited about this summer lineup! A lot of it is similar to what we had last year, but I did make some changes to a couple of weeks to give some variety to the summer. What are some things that you enjoy doing with your kids to help make sure they're not bored? Do you have any favorite weekly themes that you would like to see published here? Just drop me a line, I'd love to hear from you!!
