Thanks everyone I've watched these guys before, and they ARE easy. Theyre not just neighbors, we're actually good friends, we hang out together a ton, so i know their idiosyncracies. And yes, I will entertain them, but with minimal extra work (I might let them help mix and cook the playdough instead of just playing with it, lol). When we go camping they can come along and we have a week of vbs, so thats at least three of the weeks. And yep, mom and dad work long hours I would never consider it if they'd be hard to care for at all. I just need to sit down with mom/dad and figure it all out!

We do lots of crunchy things and some soggy things, too.

Re: Summer care for schoolagers?

We paid our DCP $25 a day last summer. It was a steal!!!!!!!

She liked our son, even took him on vacation with her as company for her daughter, but decided it was too much work to try to entertain both big kids and little kids (like big kids couldn't go out when little one's napping, big kids got antsy being confined, etc) so she's not doing school age for the summer anymore.

We are paying about $140 a week for summer day camp instead.....still a good price! Worth it to me -- and camp is open later --- until 6, and she closed at 5:30, so this will be more simulating.
