Sickness prevented my kids from doing some activities last summer. My daughter was looking forward to attend an art class. And my son even plan to go swimming. We were supposed to check if the nearby swimming pool has improved facilities or if pool lifts has been installed. Those plans were never realized as both kids got sick with dengue fever. They were hospitalized and our meager resources were badly affected. Although there were some financial blessings, the amount was set aside for their enrolment. Other plans, including swimming and art classes have to be put aside.
But despite what happened to us the kids were able to spend their summer vacation productively. Computer, books, movies, and drawing materials save them from boredom.
