  What to Do

(Site Photos) Beachlindaminkowski.jpgSummer is just beginning, and the weather is cooperating! Hopefully for those out of school, you are taking advantage of all the fun activities that will be going on for the next couple of months.  For nearby family activities, go here.

Family getaways needn't be long, but getting away, for even just a few hours drive, may be the perfect answer for you! How about a weekend camping and hunting abalone with a skilled adventurer!? Check out Dennis and Ginny Judson's Stillwater Cove Weekend

Jobs for teens may be scarce this summer.  Encourage them to try volunteering.  Start at the Santa Cruz Volunteer Center. Krista Bramson interviews teens and helps them find a good match based on  interests and skills.  Call Krista at 427-5066 or email her.

Another approach is to send them to Camp Millionaire for their two day tween or teen camps.  While we might know how to handle money and be able to teach them, we all know how effective a third party is working with tweens and teens.  Then watch them approach the summer with a different attitude.

My idea of summer? Mix and match work, a book, boogey board and beach chair --at the beach!

Are you exhausted yet?

I am always exhausted at this time of year. Not only are my two children always at two different schools, both of which I want to commit to totally and both of which I need to neglect in different amounts, but both of my children play instruments, and thus have recitals, and my son's school has their enormous year-end performance, which involves a lot of hard work from the kids and lots of chauffeur work from us parents, and I sing in a choral group which always performs this time of year (come hear us: Ariose Singers!)...

...and not only that, but the gardens are going full-tilt - the one at home which is shaded by redwoods but for which I always have high hopes, and the one at my parents' sunny farm, which is planted full of our hopeful little plants that need our care and attention. The weather has [finally!] gotten warm, and I'm ready for lying on the grass and watching for hawks and eagles, bringing the kids to the pool and hanging in the hot tub, and getting up not knowing what we're going to do today.

No such luck.... Read more >>>>

  Happy Father's Day!

(Site Photos) FathersDay1.jpgThis Sunday is Father's Day and a time to celebrate dads, grandfathers, uncles or that special male role model in your child's life.

Have you made Father's Day plans yet? If you are looking for ideas, consider:

  • Planning a family hike in the beautiful hills surrounding Santa Cruz
  • Packing a picnic lunch or dinner with his favorite beach foods and heading to the beach
  • Going for a family bike ride on Westcliff ending at Seymour for their Dad's Day
  • Treating dad to an indulgent meal at his favorite restaurant
  • Sending him golfing or mountain biking for the day - you make all the arrangements and send him on his way (maybe you could team up with another family and have another dad join him)
  • Checking the movie releases and heading to a family friendly movie for the afternoon

Dad Facts:

  • Many child development experts believe the influence of a father on his children is most critical from the ages of 6 to 14
  • In families where the mother works outside of the home, 14% of fathers are full-time stay-at-home dads
  • Nearly a quarter of all married dads have three or more children living at home
  • One in five single parents with primary custody is a dad
  • 11% of Dads are stepdads, living full-time with their spouse's children
  • Two-thirds of children under the age of six eat dinner with their dads every day
  • One in twelve men serving in the US Army are dads
  • 38% of working dads say they would take a pay cut to spend more time with their kids

Do you know of a mom or dad making a difference in our community? It need not be YOUR mom or dad; just a Santa Cruz mom or dad that impresses you. Please tell us, so we can give them the opportunity to be featured on our site! >>
