We have been empty nesters for quite a few years. Our youngest child will be 35 this fall.
Our grandchildren all live some distance from us, and because of schedules we are much more likely to visit them than they are to visit us.
I have been retired from teaching for about seven years. I taught first grade for a number of years, but the last several years I had older kids.
Not a lot of toys around our house, so I went looking for the pictures of two summer events from the last few years for some great toy images. Cousin Camp and Vacation Bible School.
Each summer for quite a few years we have had a camping trip with at least one of our kids and their families. These trips evolved into Cousin Camp, with several of the families coming together in the planning of the event. We always have plenty of games and toys for the outdoors.

Hmmm. I think only one of our headbanger challenge group still has kids at home, so we will see some creative thinking in the submissions this week. You can find their blog links in my sidebar near the top.
