Summer Bridge — More Than Just Worksheets

By Kacy Faulconer |

——Who can resist those first heady days of summer vacation? The sleeping in, the absence of homework … the bickering, the boredom, the constant invasion of personal space. Summer is great but it gets old for moms real fast.

    What great ideas! You know you have a lot of power over me when it comes to telling me to buy things. You could have posted a jar of bat guano and I’d be rushing to buy it. I must say, this list looks like it comes from a mom who has very much NOT given up.
