We finished our Summer List and crossed one thing off already! Griffy sat OUTSIDE of his baby pool while the kids did Splatter Paint. They had a lot of fun with it...and Griffin even let us paint his foot! I think we're off to a great start.
This first week off I'm letting my kids sleep in...watch tv...play video games...heck, I might even buy some junk cereal. My neighbor Kate, who always has great advice for me..with 3 terrific teenagers of her own...told me she was going to do this with her kids. You've got this week to do what you want and not have your mom nagging you to get up, shut the tv off and go to bed. This week. Next week will be a different story. Nothing crazy...a healthy sleep schedule...chores...and no tv/computer during the daylight hours. We will still have loads of fun but there has to be some order here or I'll lose it. And that ain't pretty.
