Wow, where did the week go? I can't believe how fast time flies by! The kids only have 3 weeks left of school, then I am responsible for keeping 5 kids busy all summer long! Wow. And if I do homeschool, then I am looking at this being the last 3 weeks of quiet during the day! Does anyone have any plans for the summer? Any ideas or tricks to keep the kids busy? I am making up some organizational charts and some calanders to keep them on track, but I don't have any ideas of inexpensive things to actually do with the kids. I don't want to spend a lot of money going to the zoo all the time, usually we invite other neighbor kids over and have picnics and have campouts in the back yard, but I think the kids are getting bored with doing that. What activities do you plan with your kids? Thanks in advance for any ideas you guys have!
And the second part of today's post is Who Are You? I love meeting new people! I posted last week about "I don't know what my real hair color is" and described some of who I was. Describe to me who you are! Some other of my characteristics, I am a debater. I love discussing politics. I love learning new things and reading about new things. I read fiction, non fiction, magazines (yes, I do read People and other gossipy magazines!), I enjoy reading other peoples blogs and learning about their lives. I have found several times when I have read other peoples blogs and learned different ways or options of dealing with things, life events, and I have on more then one occassion used what I have found from other peoples life experiances to transform the way that I look at things. So, would love to hear who you are! Little quirks, anything!
