I know its been a rough summer for some.......and we are all feeling
the effects of the economy.
What with gas and food prices.....the
looming election...the heat........just everything.
But lets start a positive thread. What have you done this summer
in spite of it all?????
Ill start.....well, obviously Im not able to travel much but with 4 kids
home Ive got to do something...
We are fortunate to have a pool in our backyard. So this summer
has been spent in the pool with a few breaks inside to grab a popsicle.
Ive been doing some childcare for my bff who is newly single. Her
dd is 7 right between my 5 and 9 year olds so they all play together
quite nicely. And if one of mine is gone she can play with the other
We call it "Camp Sox"
We have also taken advantage of the local libraries childrens programs.
My dd9 is taking knitting once a week. And the younger ones are
doing a "Wild Reads" program once a week which is a reading program
that benefits the Heifer Foundation.
These are all free and best
of all the library has great AC.
We've built many a fort in my family room and my kids and friends have entertained
us with many a play/show.
Has anyone else done anything fun in spite of it all?????
Im dedicating this thread to someone very special and they
know who they are
