Living in Montana for fifteen years meant outside fun in the summer. We only had three months of good weather, so we went to the lake, went to the park, and played in the yard. In Little Rock we have nine months of good weather, and then there is summer. I was shocked to find out that kids in the south spend a lot of time inside, but I understand! Being at the park is no fun when it’s one hundred degrees!
Whether you need to beat the heat or just need to cool down for a few hours, one free, fun thing to do is play board games. Little Alyssa is still trying to get the idea of “rules,” but we’re having a fun time teaching her! Here she is playing games with her older sister, Leslie:
