We have 2 of our grandchildren with us for a large part of this summer. They are ages 7 and 9. Besides having the fun of being together with them when usually we are far apart, I am their Summer School Teacher and activity coordinator. We have a bit of a schedule that they've been very good about sticking with. The schedule includes school in the morning, swimming lessons, playing board games, cooking and crafts!
