100 Things To Do This SUMMER on a Dime

 

Labor_Day_Weekend

 


I can’t believe that the Summer has come and gone. For those of you with little ones going into Nursery or Kindergarten, don’t cry! It is worse on you than it is on them.

My son entered JK last year and I was so sad that I missed his little cuddles. After a few months I eventually got used to it, and I would wait to get my cuddles at 3:30pm instead!

I am happy they are going back so they get back to a normal routine and get to learn!  For all of the Entertain Kids On A Dime Families, have a wonderful first day back at school.
