School’s Out, Now What?

Karishma Bhakta, blog contributor                        Are you struggling to keep your kids busy? You tried summer camps, the library and more.   We have an option for you.

It takes about a day, unless you go to a Science Museum, then it takes more than one day.   I myself have been to a fair share of museums in Los Angeles. For me the...
