School is out this Friday.  FIVE. SHORT. DAYS.

I am both thrilled and terrified of this fact because, let’s face it, kids need to be entertained and mommy needs to work a little. It is the ultimate battle: Quality childcare I can afford while juggling a client schedule and not neglecting summer fun.  

Summers traditionally are more hectic for me.

I can’t afford camps all summer long, nor do I want to.  I want to play and have fun with the boys while they are still young, but at the same time I have to tackle the work that is expected of me.  What is a mom to do?

It is a juggling act to be sure!

So I’ve tried to be creative with my options for this summer.  I’m thinking that a mixture of babysitter and me working from home as well as a camp or so might do the trick.

I don’t want to bore them to death while I am working from home either. Anyone have any creative ideas? What do you do to entertain the kids while trying to be productive?
