Next week’s question

The last Northwest Guardian is June 15. Will you miss the paper, or do you prefer getting your #JBLMNews online?

School is letting out soon. How do you plan to keep the kids busy and learning this summer?

“Tinkergarten! We get to be outside and learn.”

Shannon Minor

“Putting them in boot camp for 4- and 5-year-olds.”

Laura Hendricks Pitt

“Hikes and learning books from the bookstore.”

Sarah Dawn

“We have 5 acres filled with blackberries, huckleberries, elderberry, salmonberries and thimbleberries, so my kids will be picking berries. They might choose to sell them! If nothing else, I will pay them in pies and cobblers.”

Mandy Eversole

“Limit social media time, weekly chores, berry fields need pickers — plenty of things to do.”

Penny Nordin

“I highly recommend ixl.com.”

Christy Hazel

“Renting them out as babysitters. Why don’t we have year-round school again? They sleep ‘till whenever and don’t do much else as teenagers in the summer.”
