Keep Kids Moving This Summer

Keeping my brother Zac busy during the Summer is a pretty big deal to us. We don’t want him sitting at home all Summer. This year Zac will be going to 4 week long Summer camps, Zoo Camp, Mad Science, Taekwondo, and Centennial Camp. This takes up most of his time in the summer, but there are still 4 other weeks that need filled.

We are big gamers in our house. Zac, my Fiance, and I all get on our Minecraft server and play with my sister. It’s a lot of fun! The problem is Zac would sit and play games all day if I let him. Between Minecraft, Skyrim, and Assassin’s Creed there is lots for him to do. Don’t get me wrong, Zac does get a lot of physical activity during the week, Taekwondo is almost every night during the school year, but during the summer it drops down to two nights a week. I want to keep him moving and eating healthy.
