My kids are stay-at-home to play video games and FaceTime their friends kinda kids. They do NOT want to leave the house over summer.
Sorry kids, but I am NOT that parent. Thankfully, working from home gives me the ability to adjust my schedule as needed so that I can get them out of the house (usually against their will) as often as possible.
My daughter and I just had a discussion about expectations for summer break now that school is officially out (as of today). She mentioned that she does not want to go hiking at all, and even though I love hiking, I won't subject her to it (much haha), so we compromised. She actually loves running, so I suggested a couple of flat areas where I can still get in a walk with the dog but she can go running and she jumped at that. We all get to be outside and get active, but it was just a matter of compromising on the where and how this will happen.
Being the planner that I am, I like to keep lists of all the things we have and haven't done and ideas to keep the kids busy during school breaks and weekends, so I thought I'd share it with you too. So, if you are a Temecula local, or are visiting during summer break, here's a list of more than 50 things to do, right here in our town. Some of them do cost money, but not all of them.
