While my children are taking a break this summer and not attending summer school, I still want to inspire their learning throughout the summer months. We still school part-part-time three days a week for an hour or so. We do loads of summer reading programs and naturally I look for anything that helps me and my kids keep connecting.
My kids love to listen to any story about myself when I was a child. They will ask me to tell them the same story over and over. It cracks me up. It connects our childhoods; they have something in common with me. There’s something pretty awesome about connecting with my kids over something I loved when I was young.
We also love to connect over all the old-school classics like Scooby-Doo and Mickey Mouse. Cartoons such as the new Netflix original series Inspector Gadget and Danger Mouse are giving us loads to bond over. These new reboots are introducing a whole new generation to some of the most favorite characters.

AND don't forget, there are new shows streaming all month long for parents to connect during the summer months as well. My husband and I recently started to stream Hemlock Grove -- TOTALLY love this show! I was away at summer camp with my girls last week and was able to stream episodes at night while everyone was asleep . . . but shh, because I made the girls have a screen free week! I am also streaming Between . . . have you seen this yet? LOVE it! Another new series that began this month is Sense8. If you haven't' noticed, my husband and I really enjoy Sci-Fi!!
