Ours are 15, 13, 10, 8 and 2. We don't do a lot of running, especially in the summer time. The younger 2 play soccer in the spring and fall (the older 2 have outgrown the league.) The older 2 (we homeschool all 4) play on the local Christian school's sports teams. In the summer, we don't sign up for any activites. Our church youth group does have some outings and spends the beginning of the summer preparing for and earning money for their mission trip (they are in Mexico this week.) Our kids enjoy the slower pace of summer, they spend most of their time either inside playing games with one another or outside in our yard or the neighbor's yard. We do have a small pool so that keeps them occupied as well. We're hoping to get one that's a little bigger next year.
I think it's so important for kids to learn to entertain themselves, to enjoy their own company and that of their siblings. I feel like our home is a haven from the outside world and a comfortable place to be and our kids bear that out, they enjoy their times out but like to be home, too. Our boys are 15, 8 and 2 and can often all be found in the same room, the older 2 watching a ballgame or playing a video game and the 2 year old happily chattering with them (or holding the broken controller and pressing buttons like mad! LOL.) Our girls spend most afternoons in their room together if they aren't outside, talking, playing a game or watching Trading Spaces, they love that show!
