It’s unbelievable how quickly this summer is going by. I guess we really are having a lot of fun and time is flying! Here’s a short list of things to do before the school year starts up again. Bonus: these ideas also help prep our kids’ heads for coming back into the classroom.

  1. Challenge: Read three books (one each week). Obviously the size of the book should reflect the level of reader. Shorter books for those just learning and novels for good readers.
  2. Go for a swim in Thetis Lake. Not only is it warm and adult-temperature friendly, the exercise will give everyone more energy.
  3. Take out the bikes for a family ride along the Galloping Goose.
  4. Check out Witty’s Lagoon for nature & beach walks and a great educational centre.
  5.  Hike up Mount Finlayson then wonder around Goldstream.
