Cheap Summer Fun

Surviving summer around here means finding fun, cheap things to do. Today we hit on two good ones...

#1: The Library's Summer Reading Program. Each summer we sign up for the Summer Reading Program at the public library. This is a great free way to spend a little time each week making your kids smarter. They love picking out new things to read and the library is always nice and cool on a hot day. Bonus- there are so many different ones to check out you can hit a different library each week.

#2: Backyard Exploring. There are a million versions of backyard exploring. Today we used a gift card to buy an Oklahoma Bird Field Guide and a Backyard Bug Guide. We have a heavily trafficked bird feeder and a couple nests so we sat outside for some instant entertainment.
