Summer Plans with Kids

Summer Plans with Kids

We still haven't officially wrapped up our school year yet, but I'm gearing up for the summer now. I like the idea of a long, lazy summer where we all sleep in and just spend the days relaxing, but a) my kids still don't know how to sleep in and b) it's not really a realistic plan for us. I do want us to have lots of free days to do whatever we want to do, but there are also some things we need to accomplish, so I've found that going into the summer with a plan is the best way to make sure we keep some sort of balance. Here are a few ideas you may want to consider!

Weekend Warrior

What to do and where to go in the OKC metro
Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day

MetroFamily's calendar of what's going on in the metro and surrounding areas this Saturday, Sunday and Monday can be found here, along with our Memorial Day Weekend Fun Guide. Family reunions will take place. Photos and stories will be shared. The reasons for remembering will be recalled. Most of all, though, it's a time to be together and those memories, I trust, do last for families everywhere.

The Power of Good

Just a few weeks ago our state commemorated the 20th anniversary of the bombing of the federal building. During this time, leaders of the community from the mayor to the leadership of the Oklahoma City Thunder promoted the Oklahoma Standard, encouraging all Oklahomans to perform one act of honor by extending help to fellow citizens.
