Well, it's official...

As of last week I no longer have any school-age children. It's kind of hard to believe that for almost 29 years I have been parenting. No wonder I am so tired ;). My youngest son's graduation from High School last week marked the end of an era in our household. Since he has special needs he will be continuing his education by attending an adult transition program in the fall. But until then, it's SUMMERTIME!!

If I'm being honest, I have to admit that the start of summer is always one that comes with mixed emotions for me. As always, I am ready for there to be the 'lazy' days of summer, with no agendas. But, with that comes the reality of trying to keep kids from becoming lazy and bored. To try and help with that we will be posting activities that are available here at City Bible Church and as well as the Portland Metro area
that you and your family may enjoy.

To start with, our church kids and youth camps are wonderful opportunities for your kids to participate in something that is both spiritual and filled with fun activities. Here are the dates:

Kids Overnight Camp (grades 4-6) June 21 - 25

Kids Day Camp (grades 1-3) June 22 - 24

Generation Unleashed Camp August 24 -28

For more information, contact one of the Children's or Youth Pastors or call the church office (see contact info in sidebar) and they will put you in contact with the leaders.

If you are interested in something educational for your children, the local libraries offer Summer Reading Programs. Just contact your local branch for times and ages, etc.

We'd love to hear from you. What are your favorite
summertime activities?
