#Microblog Monday: Summer Care?

It has been a crazy couple of weeks, with piles of out of town holiday guests, and I am thoroughly and totally exhausted.  Now I am frantically trying to get my holiday shopping done, while still looking for a new job, while planning things for the kids to do (they are on summer vacation), while also planning for moving back to the US (if we do that next summer--in addition to the US job, we have some other possibilities, including in Africa--but more on that later).

But here is what I have been wondering, amidst the other madness:  what do American parents do these days with their elementary school aged children during summer breaks, and how much does that cost?  As the possibility of returning to the US looms large, I'm pondering the logistics of being a family with two working parents, and I'm totally stumped on this one.
