Lazy Days of Summer

School has been out for barely a week now and the kids are already bored and I am near crazy. I don't remember last summer being this hot. The boys try to play outside, but don't last more than 20 min. Ella can't even stay out there for 10. So I am open to any ideas for things to keep us busy...remember we are on a budget.

I am going to get some new craft supplies this week and we are reading TOM SAWYER as a family so we can watch the movie later. We do have Bible school one week, but only in the mornings. For the rest of you looking for ideas, I did find this online today:

I am sure we will make it to one or two of these. For those of you who don't live here, check out your local theatre. You can't beat $2 a person to get out of the heat for a couple of hours.

Outside of the summer crazies life is good. We have 2 borders for the summer. Chase, my cousin, and Jeffrey, Gary's nephew (21 & 20) are here in Jackson working. Keeping "our big boys," as Gary calls them, and our kids both happy is proving to be quite a feat. They compete for the tv and irritate each other. They do keep each other entertained, which is a big help when I am cooking. If only Gary and I could get some free babysitting out of the deal.

Still no camera for those of you wondering. It has to show up sometime. When it does....I will make up for lost time (I promise)!!
