Sugar Aunts
You know those days when the kids are out of school, they are picking on (and at) each other for FUN...when you really need to get outside and RUN, or SWIM, or play at the park...But it's raining or TOO HOT to stay outside any longer???
And these words are coming at you non-stop..."I'm boooooored!" "I'm toooooo HOT!"  Or maybe you just need a break from the regular summer line up and you are looking for new play and learning activities.
