Now I have to think of SUMMER PLANS. My brain is totally fried from being home school teacher the last 2 months. Here are some things we will be doing!
SWIMMING at local pool~ the kids LOVE this. It's open from 2:30- 5pm M-F and I usually buy the 10 visit for $10 (or $1.50 per day) but this doesn't open until June 25th.
BOWLING~ Kids can go everyday for FREE (just pay for shoe rental) this is NATIONWIDE. Free bowling available until 8 p.m., 7 days a week. AMF summer is May 14 – Sept. 3, 2012. Just sign up https://freebowling.amf.com/. You print out daily vouchers. We were a bit disappointed that our local bowling alley wasn't on the list BUT when we went in there they have their own program. Bay Area peeps~ sign up here for Albany Bowl.
MOVIES~ Some movie theaters offer Free/Discount Kid Movies during the summer. The AMC near us stopped their summer program (boo hiss) but there is a couple other theaters we can go to! Check out Cinemark $1.00 summer movies HERE. Regal $1.00 summer movies HERE. When I read the movie selection to my kids they looked at me like I was silly then told me they were too old for those....ummm NEVER too old for Happy Feet- what are you talking about! They just giggled at me. So I guess I might have to bring them once a month to $5 Tuesday at our local movie theater to watch newer movies.
CAMPS~ I wish! Too expensive for us and the ones I can afford the kids DON'T want to go too and since I am home M-F no need to put them somewhere they don't like. We tried a couple last year that didn't work out. Maybe next year I will be organized enough to apply for scholarships.
PARKS~ Oh yes we will be visiting several parks this summer! I'm trying to find some we haven't been too yet.
MUSEUMS~ We will be going to a couple of these during the summer.
CAMPING~ Oh yes! This will be happening too!
I also signed up this morning for Operation Summer 2012- an 8 week activity-packed plan to help you create memories, strengthen relationships, provide structure and have fun!
