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.
