Schools been out for just a few days and I’m already ready to send them all back!! My hat’s off to those parents out there that choose to home school. I honestly don’t know how you do it.
My day has been filled with screaming and yelling, wrestling and tattle tailing. I suppose it doesn’t help matters that it dumped on us last night and the ground is sopping wet. I don’t want to send all these boys outside because then they’ll just bring mud in, onto my newly mopped tile. (In previous homes that we’ve lived in there’s never been a lot of tile.. but this house has a LOT. Do you have any idea how hard it is to get it *really* clean??) I am trying to come up with ideas of things we can do over the summer to get us out of the house. We’ll be heading to the Zoo for sure. The Oklahoma City Zoo is such a nice one. It’s much better than the Denver Zoo. It’s one of the best family-friendly Zoos in the Country. I’m also excited to try some of the new “splashgrounds” that have been built since last summer. They are essentially playgrounds with water features. Really cool stuff! If you have any ideas of things that I can do toting a bunch of kids from age 2 -12, please share them with me. J
