SUMMER, summer, summer...oh, how I love summer!

Aside from reclaiming my `me time' after work (yey, tutor break!), no one is more excited about summer than my kids who always look forward to enrolling in activities that they love.

An important rule that I always remember is to let my children choose the workshops that they like. I do not impose. I just let them be. After all, that's what summer should be.fun and memorable!
