Summer is fast approaching..need suggestions

What do you do with your school age kids during the summer? I'm currently not working but still looking (casualty of this horrible economy). I've been enjoying my time off and don't see any job prospects coming up before school ends.

As the only parent in the house, I know I need to have a plan but I want the plan to be flexible. If I want to keep my son home 1 week, and send him to camp the next week, I'd like to be able to do that. On the other hand, if I do find a job, he will need somewhere to go.

The place that he and I wanted him to go does NOT give refunds once you sign up for summer camp. It's the local children's museum and I decided we can go there anytime we want anyway, so that option is out.

There are a couple of other places that I can sign him up at that will give a refund if I decide not to send him there.

Any suggestions on this issue? Thanks all

Who knew.....?

Hi all!

I have a Kindergartener and so far this year has been such fun for me! I have one question though...who knew that starting K meant coming home with holes in the knees of every pair of pants??!!

My son does not have ONE pair of pants without holes in the knee. For me, this is a bit frustrating because I normally consign his nicer things, but won't be able to do that with any of his pants this time!

I was laughing with his teacher about it the other day. I told her at K orientation they should warn the parents and suggest that they patch the pants PRIOR to school starting...LOL.

My son's class spends alot of time sitting on the rug, so that may have alot to do with it. I've noticed alot of the kids propped on their knees instead of sitting on their bottoms.

Anywho...I just thought it was a funny subject and it would be fun to see what others have experienced with this.

Have a great day!

Welcome to my new blog!

Hi and welcome to my new blog ; all about being a parent. I have a 6 yr old son who is in Kindergarten and this is such a fun stage for me. Getting to watch him learn and be excited about learning is a blast.

I'm hoping with this blog to share some of what I have learned in 6 yrs and learn from the more seasoned parents out there.

I really want to hear from everyone and hope that you enjoy my blog. Thanks for reading!
