I've started filling in my summer calendar! For a couple years I posted summer activity ideas on my old blog. (Find them here, though some links may be outdated.) This year I've found a few more things to add that look fun, and there's something for all ages...
Mady has taken several writing and poetry workshops in this beautiful space. Now they are offering a teen drop-in art night, Tuesdays from 6-8, $10. You can find the Young Writer's Studio information and summer classes here, too.
The Junior Ranger program and others through the Birch Bay interpretive center look interesting. We have been to the small museum there on the beach and the kids enjoyed it. These programs look similar in concept to the Hovander ones that were shut down with budget cuts. We'll definitely be attending the archaeology program!
And at Village Books this week, a presentation by the Urban Pantry author. They had me at the pretty book cover and great title. I already have a friend-date plan to go.
I could spend the entire day searching around online for activities, but I should probably take a shower and enjoy the day. :) If you have other ideas, please leave a comment and enlighten everyone! Let the summer begin!
