The more I schedule for our day, the better. I actually think this is the problem this week: we're staying home so that I can get organized for camping (hah!) which I know usually backfires, but hey, it's almost Friday.
Things We Like To Do-
|Ox and Mr. Norm. Note: Ox picked out his own outfit.|
I LOVE the activities that the library has planned for kids! Story time is good, but their Tuesday afternoon programs are better!
Plus the library has AC and clean bathrooms - making it an ideal stop whenever we're out.
|Little Frog practicing her backstroke.|
I LOVE swimming lessons! If only because it is a good activity to do in the morning. Last year was rough, when Little Frog wasn't old enough to participate. This year rocks so much that I'm spending another $140 for the kids to do another session.
Downside: The other parents get chatty, one even asked for my phone number. Nuh-UH!
|Red and Blue make Purple Sidewalk Chalk!|
I am not one for doing crafts and projects and activities. I think it's important for my kids to learn to play without being overly managed* but making things is fun for all of us. Sidewalk Chalk was a fantastic activity, unlike making superball chunks last week.
Plus, that green food coloring actually washed out of Little Frog's shirt, so all is good.
*This statement is not backed up by any real proof that it works - but sometimes results in my kids playing together nicely. Or in Little Frog earning a new nickname: Naughty Bird.
