Hello everyone, Karen Kirst here to talk about summer holidays. To me, summer means a break from homeschooling, so I’m as eager for it as my kids are! Since my husband is a Marine, we live on a military base. There are free pools for us to use and the beach is a short twenty minute drive away. There are tons of parks, as well. We take advantage of the inexpensive movie theaters on base and the summer reading program at the library.
My favorite summer event is the 4th of July celebration the base hosts every year. While the kids take advantage of the bouncy houses, we get to listen to the 2nd Marine Division band play outfitted in their dress blues. Of course, what’s an event like this without funnel cakes and nachos and superhero-shaped ice cream that melts faster than the kids can eat it? The best part, in my opinion, is the fireworks. Those Marines really know how to put on a show!
What about you? What are your favorites parts of summer?
