Can you feel the electricity in the air? No, it’s not a spring thunderstorm — it’s the first day of summer vacation!
Kids in Chamapaign-Urbana area schools are already out for summer break, or will be set free this week.
There’s nothing quite as delicious as that very first day of freedom, no matter what age you are. So how should you spend it? We’ve got five great ways to wile away the daylight and savor the sweetness of your first day of summer.
1. Sleep in! We know not everyone gets to stay home on the first day of vacation (sad-panda face!) but those of you who do should definitely get your snooze on. What better way to welcome in the lazy days of summer than a morning in your PJs?
2. Go get your pool pass! Area pools open this weekend so run, don’t walk to sign up for your season’s pass.
3. Sign up for summer camp! There’s still time to register your wee (and not-so wee) ones for summer camps and activities. Check out our list of area options for camps. Looking for a STEAM camp? We have those listed here.
5. Do nothing at all! Stop, sit still and enjoy a cold, refreshing beverage on your porch/stoop/patio/balcony. Toss the kids some sidewalk chalk or set up the sprinkler, close your eyes for a second, take a deep breath and pat yourself on the back — you made it through another school year.
