We didn’t do summer school in our house. But we did make sure the kids were still learning even though they were on summer break. Whether it’s visiting a museum, taking a tour, doing an experiment or reading a new book, our kids had summer school fun adventures unlike many other school kids.
Summer School Fun Adventures
Kids need down time during the summer months to learn new things. There is less structure and a looser schedule. But that doesn’t mean school is out. Instead, we celebrated summer a little differently than some families. At the Williams house, we know that hands on learning and getting out there to experience life is one of the best ways to enjoy summer break! Take a look of how we participated in our own version of Summer School 2013.
Whether we were visiting a presidential library, climbing Stone Mountain or learning how to sell things on eBay, the kids were learning something new everyday. We visited 6 states over the summer and packed in some great memories!
- Jimmy Carter Presidential Library & Museum
- Martin Luther King Jr Historic Site
- Lincoln’s homeplace & tomb
- Lake Michigan – Indiana Dunes State Park
- Kentucky Palisades – Tom Dorman
- Stone Mountain, Georgia
- St. Louis Gateway Arch
- Big Four Pedestrian Bridge – Louisville

There were more adventures, learning opportunities and experiences but at least this gave you a hint of how we spent our break from school.
I know you were busy this summer too. What did you learn? Where did you visit, tour, climb? I’d love to hear about your summer fun experiences!
