What Are Your Summer Relationship Builders?

the word summer scratched into sand with flip flops nearby

A few weeks ago I wrote about my relationship with the older boys and how I feel like we’re getting closer to one another over time. This summer I want to build on that with some fun activities. My list includes time at the beach, a possible service project for senior citizens that the boys approved, and at least one trip to an amusement park.

Then I got to wondering what other families are doing to build closer relationships over the next 3 or 4 months. So naturally I’m bringing the question to you. What are you doing in the next few months to build your relationship with your children?
