I think we can all agree that last summer was strange. The pandemic summer felt like such a bummer for me. It was the last summer I had with just the boys and was looking forward to all the things we could do before their little sister arrived in the Fall. Instead, we spent the summer at home and made the best of it with lots of water play, process art, and nature hikes in the woods next door to us. It was a wonderful summer and we created so many memories! If we’re being honest though, I’m thrilled things are more open this year than they were last. We have a long list of things we’ve done/want to do during this season of warm weather in the midwest and I thought I’d share 10 things you can do for free this summer! No need to spend a dime!
And, as always, I think something super helpful (though, if we’re being honest, it’s not easy and it definitely doesn’t happen here all the time), try to unplug and find those little moments to connect with your kids. Making memories rich in connection + building strong relationships with them is an instant mood-booster! A wonderful way to live life fully and end the day feeling proud of your time being present as a parent.
