 I love summers with my kids.  The freedom of wearing pajamas all day, having no homework to worry about, going on adventures, enjoying the beautiful weather, and being outside as much as possible. We love to explore and squeeze in as much fun as we can! With six kids, costs can really add up, and I’m always looking for ways to save.  Over the years I’ve discovered how to do summer on a budget–and that you don’t have to go very far from home or spend a lot of money to have the best summer ever!
