Summer makes my heart sing! I love the warm weather, getting outdoors, and having a freer schedule than we do during the school year. It’s a time to make some good memories and have a lot of fun. You may think “fun” requires a lot of money, but truly it does not!

My kids and I have done numbers two, three, four, and six, and they warmly talk about our times together. And even as I type, there sits a huge bag of water balloons in my closet just waiting for a showdown of sorts. (No one knows it yet, but there’s going to be a water balloon fight one of these days when my husband gets off of work!) It doesn’t matter how old your kids are, these ideas are fantastic – all seven of them! Make some fun, frugal, crazy memories this summer!
