There is a one week gap between summer camp ending and the kids' school starting. Too hectic to fit in a good trip the week before school starts. I thought of going into the mountains for a week. But decided to fly out my older nephew (12yo) instead.
Kids will have a great time, especially my son. And this nephew has been very bummed because his mom and dad just told him last month that they would be moving out of their (nice) home and into the (very small) house that they own as a rental. This entails moving schools. My sister and her husband had led both kids to believe that they'd be going to back to their neighborhood schools with all their friends up until June, when they dropped the bomb.
Not sure that's the route I'd have taken. But hard to say what I'd do if I were defaulting on my house.
So hopefully he can forget his troubles for a week. We'll pack in a bunch of fun kid stuff while he is here.
