I put them in day camp after a period of indecision - mainly because of the expense, but also because I feel like they won't get a "real" vacation. And, as always, there's the guilt of having other people care for your kids... I have to say, I'm so glad I decided on day camp! Everyday when I pick them up they jump around telling me their adventures. They go on trips, make new friends, just like an episode of sesame street Best decision as far as I'm concerned. Then off to grandparents for a week. They only have one month of vacation (private school) and only one week w/o specific plans. I'll have to think up trips and activities. Have a good summer, everyone!
