Schools are out for summer! And every kid is looking forward to some playtime at the beach, including mine. Therefore, I will try to take them to the beach this weekend and let them go wild…They need some free play time with water fights and sand  pits, lots of ice-cream, and bike rides. So, I will try to squeeze my work load and make more time for them, because our summers must be unforgettable… But, at night time when they’ve gone to bed, it is perfect for some fun reading. Here’s a roundup of this week’s most fun links from the web.
