They're Home . . . Again!

I hear that a holiday, snow days, and teacher work days are keeping the 4 oldest grandkids home again ... and again ... and again

1/21 - no school
 
1/22 - 2 hour early dismissal

1/23 - 2 hour early dismissal

1/24 - 2 hour delay

1/25 - 2 hour early dismissal

1/28 - no school

1/29 - no school
 
But, as always, there are few dull moments and they are in high gear ...
 
STUNNING DUCT TAPE T-SHIRT PROJECT
 
 
JUMPING ON ICE ENCRUSTED TRAMPOLINE
 
 
SCIENCE LAB 101: 
SUN SURROUNDED BY SOLAR FLARES
 
  
A RACETRACK WINDS THROUGH A BEDROOM
 
 
A NEWLY EMPTIED CLOSET
MORPHS INTO A COZY CLUBHOUSE
 
 
HANGING OUT POOLSIDE

 
AND THEIR FAVORITE SONG THROUGH IT ALL
 
 
Jenn writes,
'where some see a roll of duct tape,
my children see bookmarks for friends, a new purse for mom, a bag for a doll,
a new folder for school, a fire to roast marshmallows on, and even a new t-shirt
 
where some see an empty toilet paper roll,
my children see barriers for a racetrack and a sun with solar flares
 
where some see a messy closet,
my children see a clubhouse
 
where some see taking another bath,
my children see a chance to put on swim suits and splash around together
 
while some mothers wonder what 4 children are doing upstairs for so long,
i put my feet up and enjoy a cup of coffee!'

  3. Wow! I'm very impressed with the duct tape shirt. It reminds me of the young girl who made a prom dress out of duct tape.

  16. Jennifer, those creative juices begin to flow at a very young age ... and are either stifled or fertilized into bloom. So parents, take note!and say 'yes' whenever you can!

Welcome to the table, friend!

This is where we gather and hang out. I'd love for you to pull up a chair and jump right into the conversation. Or simply say 'hello.'

l'll be dropping in to visit you sometime soon ...
