No Playdate

Summer is halfway over. We’ve gone on our Oregon Coast vacation, and Anna has finished both her art camp and her first Girl Scout camp. Now we have two down weeks before her next day camp, and she wants to call all her friends from school and set up times to play with them. That’s where we begin this week’s list, with a brewing controversy over the “play date.”

  1. Thanks for the link. Hard to believe that summer is more than half over. My kids start a week earlier than usual because the U.S. Open will be played in our city next June and the kids need to be out by then.
