School has just let out for the summer in Southwest Michigan but would you believe some stores already have back-to-school sale items on display?

I was shopping just the other day and saw the back to school supplies out. I thought to myself, "Already?" Kids have been out of school for a little over a week. I've worked retail for a long time in my life and still don't understand why stores need to rush everything. I mean it's Christmas in September at some places.

So what can you do with your kids for the truly short time they're on summer break? Surprisingly, a Michigan library card will get you into lots of parks and museums around the state. Check that out for some summer idea starters.
