And All The Kids Say, “YAY!” School’s Out For Summer! So Now What Do They Do?

How exciting it is for school to finally be over with for the year?  I sooooooo remember those days! I graduated from John Marshall (several years ago, but shhhhh… don’t tell anyone.) I may be a little odd, but I actually used to really like school. There are days now that I wish I could go back to those times, but then, I’m old now.  So what do kids do now that they really don’t have anything to do?  Here are a few ideas:

Go for bike rides!  I have been enjoying this as of late.

This is a photo of a ride I went on just a couple of weekends ago in Lanesboro with some friends.  Such beautiful trails to ride on and I had so much fun.  I was not too happy that my friend Dana decided to snap a photo of me from behind and when I figured out what she was doing I said, “Stop That!” lol.  It was so much fun however, I highly recommend a bike ride.  You feel so good after the exercise and the fresh air.  I love riding my bike and it’s a great activity to do with a group of friends or even family!

There are several parks, trails, and nearby areas that have such beautiful scenery. For a map of the park & trail system here in rochester, click on the image below.

Pack A Picnic!  Hey, picnic’s are a ton of fun.  You could have one just about anywhere, even in your own backyard.  Take a roadtrip to a nearby city, visit with friends, invite friends, pack whatever you want!

Go To Or Have A Garage Sale! You could probably make a lot of money getting rid of things you don’t have.  Just the other day, we mentioned the average amount of items a person has just stored away in their garage, and it ends up being alot!

Here is an idea for rainy days:  MAKE COOKIES!

Cookies are wonderful and they are fun to make, (for all ages might I add!)  You can really get creative here.  I know I don’t just speak for myself when I say eating them is just as fun.  My favorite cookies were my grandma’s molasses cookies. She used to let my sister and I help her make them, and of course, lick the bowl after we were done rolling out the little balls.  Hey, I don’t care if you are seven or fifty, making cookies is still a fun activity.  Just be sure to wait for a day that is either not 90 degrees or is raining or something.  I am sure we will have our fair share of those this summer.

If you are real ambitious or have alot of energy you could plant and tend a garden!

Oh there are so many things you could find to do!  Those are just a few ideas off of the top of my head.   I sure wish I was a lucky last day of school kid today like many in the area.
