We started off our morning going to the Blue Ridge Parkway for an insect outing with some other kids and a nature guide. Luke loved every minute of it – Emma and Drew were a little bored by the end – Emma because she’s not to into bugs and Drew because he’s four.
Just finished ski jumping on the Wii fit. Think I might have pulled a calf muscle 🙂
Here are 150 awesome boredom busters for summer. I love it because for most of them you don’t have to go to Michael’s and spend $40 or have an art degree or spend all day in the kitchen or clean up a big mess with these ideas. Just simple fun things your kids will love. A great addition to the list is playing in the fountain in Charleston. Had to throw in this picture from our trip to see my sister in April. Drew is in the background and my dad made this picture before my wonderful husband soaked me. My favorites from the list are writing on the driveway with ice cubes, catching lightin’ bugs (fireflies for all you yankees), cooking on the grill, putting the pool at the bottom of the slide, family bike rides, washing bikes (this keeps my kids busy for a long time), water balloon fights, swinging on swings, and I’ve never tried it but I think I am up for washing my hair in the summer rain. What do like to do in the summer?
I still haven’t gotten into a blogging routine. When I get ready to sit down and post I have about 20 things I want to write about and pictures I want to post. Today we had a kitchen full of screamy 8 and 9 year old girls over to make pizza. It was Emma’s idea to have a Cooking Club this summer so this is the second time we have gotten the girls together to cook and have fun. We made granola bars the first time and make your own pizza today. Lots of fun and yummy. I’ll post pics and recipes later.
Since we have taken a vacation from our school work I just don’t seem to ever get to the computer as much. I have been busy trying to get some cleaning and organizing done and we have been on the road alot so the blog has been quiet. I hope to settle into a schedule soon and start being more consistent. I want to update the look of my blog and get a new header and background so I hope to do that soon. If you know of any good sites with blog headers leave me a comment.
