  1. Wow summer break is just starting here in the UK. Most kids either finished last Friday or finish today/tomorrow. For 6 weeks! I am so glad for Pokemon Go, it seems to be giving the roving bands of teens a purpose. There is nothing for kids to do around here that doesn’t cost loads of money, PoGo is a boon. Also baby sloths are always amazing.
