Summertime — the sun is shining its delightfully warm rays down on our children as they happily splash in the swimming pool , enjoy a refreshing popsicle , or swing carefree on a tire swing at the park. Children work hard during the school year, and they deserve a a great Summer vacation away from reading textbooks, writing book reports, and getting drilled with math facts.
