Last week, I shared about my goals to start an initiative in my town to start a youth program aimed at suicide and bully prevention. We have support with seven moms working together to make a difference. Thank you all for your support.
Summertime began officially for us last week. This summer I will be busy with projects and grandkids. Our first weekend, rain deluged our area, but we had fun together as a family watching movies.
What do you do to make summer more meaningful to your family? Here are just a few ideas and resources.
- Visit your local library and join the fun summer reading challenges.
- See a free movie at your local movie theatre. Our local theatre offers free summer movies at 11 and noon and then we go grab a bite to eat.
- Get out in the garden and plant herbs and vegetables. My grandkids help me water my herb plants. We also cook together with the herbs.
- Read a fun book together.
- Have a movie night at home. I love the family-friendly movies on Amazon Prime. They also have a great Christian selection. Here is a result of a search that I did for kid-friendly free Prime videos. My apologies if a few not so friendly videos slipped in so pay attention to the ratings. I did see a few that I would not recommend.
- Keep arts and craft supplies on hand. You will be amazed at the creations that they come up with.
- Take a nature hike.
What ideas do you have for summer-time fun? Share your great posts this week no matter how old. We love posts that feature great ideas.

Karen’s post fits well with this week’s theme and focuses on how to fill your life with family laughter and fun. I love the verse that she shared:
“Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!” (Psalm 127:3-5a, ESV).”
