After a stressful end of the school year, we have entered the unfamiliar territory of summer vacation (prior to kindergarten, Laurel attended a year-round day care). And 40% of our day camp plans evaporated. And Laurel has vetoed the countless day camp and lesson ideas I have pitched to replace said evaporated plans. So in addition to piecing together playdate swaps and sitters so I can keep up with client work, I've got a keen eye on fun happenings around town. Among those, consider checking out ParkARTS Boston's roster of free summer events. In its 14th year, this program includes an impressive array of music, theatre, and dance performances, as well as puppet shows, story times, and art activities.
