Keeping the Kids Occupied - Marlene, 72
With the school year finished, I needed a plan to keep my grade school daughters occupied. At the time, we had a family membership for the Pittsburgh Zoo (only $10 a year). Every week, we would tour a different part of the zoo followed by a picnic. Also, once a week, we would go to the Carnegie Library (free) for story time or a wonderful kids movie, followed by a picnic on the grounds. Once a week they volunteered with me as I did the shopping for Meals on Wheels and helped me while I was a Girl Scout leader. It was a nice breather when school resumed in the fall!
