SUMMER RULES + 5 FREE FUN IDEAS

SCHOOL IS OUT!

Some kids are off to camp, traveling(yessir) or staying home like I did with their grams, mom, pops or siblings. FREEDOM!..Well, so they think. LOL . Yeah in their minds they're sleeping in till 11, making cereal and then off to play their PS4/X Box, Nintendo errrything all day everyday, NOT TODAY. LOL

So, Milian isn't so happy about this but that's not my problem-lol. These days are we raising couch potatoes or Legends? The stakes are high and it's up to us to prep and guide them.  

Kids should get in at least an hour a day of reading, writing or some type of educational activity. Believe me, this isn't their idea of summer fun..but you can't completely fall off for the summer. 

Michelle (wifey), came across this list today. It makes sense..and even though they may not be feelin' it...it will help them to stay on track and not become a lazy eyes buggin' video/tv/smartphone zombie. #word

2. WATERPARKS

These spots can get pricey but check out GROUPON for a deal near you and don't forget to check the park's website for their deals. Weekdays can be cheaper and definitely less crowded. Also, check if you can bring your own food. Pack a cooler and avoid the outrageous prices and junk food...best part eat for FREE.  Here in NY we get down like that. Set a time with the fam and meet by the car, pop the trunk and start grubbin' LOL.
