My daughter recently posted on Facebook that she didnt know if she was a good parent, a bad parent, or no kind of parent at all. She was talking about her boys and what they were doing with their summer. When she wrote this, they were 14, 11 and 7.
So far this summer, theyve formed a bicycle gang and ridden their bikes everywhere that a bicycle can be ridden. They built a tree house. They babysat a neighbors kitten and built a fenced-in area to keep it in. Sometimes they put the kitten in the basket on one of the bikes and gave it a ride.
They took their allowances and went to The Market Place and found treasures. They came to Humanity House and made totes and learned to sew.
