Never Ending Summer Vacation

While the teachers are on strike, the kids shall play...

We are on day nine of the lovely teacher strike in our school district. I support our teachers and agree that class size is a huge problem. However, I also would love for my children to not be in school over the fourth of July holiday next year.

But in the meantime, we've taken it upon ourselves to make the most of this extended summer break. We especially like to play in cities where all of the kids are currently attending classes.

Last week we invaded a nearby town's community center pool. It was fabulous! They have the best indoor pool ever, complete with water slide, lazy river, and fountains. The boys and their neighborhood friends had a blast.

Today we are contemplating heading to the largest lake in the state to play in the sunshine and munch on some Ivar's grub. It's a beautiful sunny day and the lack of other children at the playgrounds will make it even more heavenly!

Hopefully, next week will find Nick and Nolan donning new backpacks and hitting the books. But for now we'll just take advantage of this beautiful September day and have some more summer fun!
