Still holding tight here. We spent our $10/week fun budget yesterday and went to the outdoor pool. It was fantastic. Long, happy day of swimming and playing and the kids dropped into bed last night, tired and happy. And today? Not sure what we have planned. School starts tomorrow. We are commuting by bike these days and we need to have a trial run and practice our route and using the bike locks, etc. I have stuff to make cookies, so we might do that so the kids have a treat in their lunch boxes tomorrow.
Must keep these kiddos busy. I hear of families that can frolic and play and entertain themselves. My kids have yet to catch on to this concept. It just breaks down into arguing and fighting. I know it is a phase that we are in right now and it will pass, but for the time being, I am running hard to keep my middle child busy before he can tweak his sister into a brawl.
What do you guys do to keep your kids busy without spending any money? Especially an 8 year old boy with a LOT of energy.
