Long Weekend Entertainment

Okay, so didn't these kids just go back to school? Now they are home with me instead of at school learning about Mr. King. Then tomorrow is a teacher prep day so still no school! Oh well, I am going to make them watch the inauguration with me tomorrow. We are struggling with how to burn off all this boy energy without destroying Grandma's house, furniture, treasures or each other. Today Matthew came up with a great pass-time. A package of plastic cups and he was good for hours.


First you build a big tower


Then you whack it!

Then you build another

And let your sister whack it!

Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.

I bought more cups for tomorrow.
