Keep Active in the Summer

It is summer and the kids are out of school.  We need to build activity into their days or it is too easy to settle in to a lazy summer and watch too much TV and play more video games than is good for them.


We have Tennis Tuesday every week, and go swimming at least once a week if not more.  I have many jobs around the house for the kids to do, but I have a tendency to be happy with just staying home, so I have to make sure that we get out and are active daily.  My current plan is wake the kids up and go jogging or do other exercise and then do whatever we have to get done.  We live in Southern California, so in the summer, it gets very hot in the afternoon, so outside exercise is best done in the morning when it is still cool.  Swimming is good for the afternoon though.

What are you doing to stay active this summer?
