Summer has started for me. The kids are out and we are getting ready for vacation, family reunions, and trips to visit colleges. My 17 year old will be a senior this year. So we are continuing the hunt for college scholarships. As many parents know it is hard to pay for tuition but we will be applying to every scholarship that he qualifies for this year. We will have 2 in college after he graduates next year. Bills will be higher as well in the summer- the kids are home so that means more meals, more electricity, more of everything will be used. There are so many ways that you can cut down on the cost over the summer. One way is cheap entertainment I plan to take the boys to $2 movie and popcorn, library for reading events, and the local museum. We are making our own frozen treats this summer. I will post some recipes later on of them. I am just so excited about summer this year.
