You know, camp, music programs, summer CCD, trips to amusement parks and the Jersey shore.
Most of me feels that the summer should be relaxing and free of organized events and activities.
That an occasional trip to the beach and a weekly trip to the library for fresh summer reads should be enough.
Oh, and making sure there is a daily swim at our town lake should be my only involvement.
I picture my boy up early and out the door roaming the neighborhood and town with his friends, coming home for lunch when he hears the twelve o'clock whistle and then heading out again until it's time to go the lake...
Unfortunately that is unrealistic as the other boys are at camp, involved in music programs or down at the beach for the summer.
Well I think my compromise with myself will be that he will have an unstructured summer at least until July 4th. There will be no plans or activities to eat up the day. No places we have to get to.
