Summer. As a kid, everyday IS the Best Day Ever!  I remember my summer mornings waking up, calling my neighborhood friends and organizing a kickball game. After burning off some morning energy, I’d prepare to watch the game shows, “Press Your Luck” “$25,000 Pyramid” and “The Price Is Right”. Followed by a bowl of Beefaroni or Ravioli.

As a kid, summer seemed to be all about, “being a kid”.

As an adult, I now know the stress it put on my parents to make sure that summer, “was about being a kid.”  I know that after a day at work, my parents were exhausted. “But Mom, there’s just so much to do!
