Club Mom

 It's that time of year where the boredom starts to kick in...
school's out
friends are on vacation
baseball season is over

If you are like me you are always looking for fun ways to entertain the kids...although back when I was a kid, we entertained ourselves ---- what the heck is wrong with kids today???

I remember when we got kicked out the door in the morning and didn't come back home until it was well after dark or we were hungry and thirsty...but most of the time we either packed a lunch of snacks and drinks or we ate at whatever neighborhood kid's house that had food.

We made up our own adventures of
riding our bikes,
splashing and wading through the creeks (or cricks?),
having lemonade (or koolaid) stands,
building forts out of old lumber and blankets,
rolling around in the grass and poison ivy,
playing ball with the neighborhood kids,
swinging on old rusty metal swingsets,
climbing on hay bales in a neighbor's barn,
drinking water out of and spraying each other with garden hoses

ahhh, the good old days.

at any rate, since today's kids aren't nearly as adventurous as their parents were...we continue to look for different and new ideas to entertain them, until they drive us crazy and we lock them outside ;) 

just kidding....

well, maybe

that's why I introduced my little kids to Club Mom.

We spend a few weeks here and there (usually not consistent, because we are always busy doing something) throughout the summer making crafts, doing projects, visiting new places, etc.

I call it Club Mom.

If you are looking for fun things to do, then be sure to check back often throughout the summer and see all the fun, cool things we have planned.

Last year's adventures can be found in a page tab on the sidebar.
