Fun Stuff

I am sick of the winter. So are the kids. Today they were out riding bikes and rollerblades, even while they had some sleds in the backyard. They are just desperate for spring. Our emotional lives have been in a kind of winter too. Up and down with discipline and my parent tool kit feels like it is running low. I decided to post pictures of the fun stuff we have found to do inside.

Instead of just doing school around the ping-pong table, we decided to actually play some ping-pong. Wokelle wanted to join in so bad, but hitting that little ball proved to be a bit too challenging. This big balloon worked much better.

A friend gave me a box of cast-offs from her son's room. Inside were many treasures, including this little Poo Chi Dog. We had one years ago, which my Mom and I played with and laughed over, but the kids were just too young to really enjoy. Here he is again. This time, I find him a bit annoying and the kids are giggling uncontrollably. Why won't they feed the real dog this much?

You can find anything on the internet -- even PooChi directions!

This is how Mary tends to do school. Forget the desk!

Just in case school... or life ... gets to be too much. Jerome decided to provide us with an outlet.
