What Can I Do?

Perhaps you've heard that question a time or two this summer, as well. I can't wait until I can just say, "Go jump in the pool!" Until then, I decided to compile a list of activities the kids can do at home -- mostly by themselves, but several with minimal help, as well. I seem to keep adding to it, as well. I printed it off and put it on the fridge and direct kids there everytime I am asked that question.

The first several times I pointed them there, they found something intriguing and were quite excited. Unfortunately, I have since packed away many of the "supplies." (Of course, packing them helped me take inventory and get a longer list...) But, now I can no longer point to the fridge.

Today, once the park got too hot, I let them watch videos and play on the computer most of the afternoon. It's hard not to feel guilty: but we just have 6 days to go... I think I can, I think I can, I think I can!

Of course, my list is personal to the things we have, but if you would like a copy for ideas, let me know and I will e-mail it to you!
