Summer is here! Great...
Wednesday marked the official first day of summer at my house since school got out at 11:00. And do you know what happened at 11:21? First fight between the 7 and 9 year old. Then again three more times before bedtime. Apparently none of my speeches about how there would be no fighting all summer long OR constant video games fell on deaf ears. And can I just point out that I've been giving the speech oh-so-casually for a week in preparation for summer? (Um... the speech today wasn't so nice I have to admit.)
My point is, I'm going crazy already! I can't get any work done, forget going to the gym, and it's not like I have the money to send them to camp after camp so how do you keep your kiddos entertained, occupied or out of your hair for a few hours? Luckily, the pool opens next week, but even that's going to get old soon. I'd love some fresh ideas!
