Okay, I'm not going to beat around the bush, I am ready for school to start. The kids are starting to drive me and each other CRAZY. They are tired of me nagging them to clean up the house and get their "job chart" done. They also need ME to entertain them. What happened to the good ole days of going outside to play for hours and using your imagination. Thanks to TV, video games, computer, etc., kids have become less easily entertained and they all have A.D.D. I now have a password on the computer and am threatening to trash all the T.V.s. What a mean mom. It will be nice to have them back on a good schedule. They are all looking forward to school starting. I think they are all a little tired of it too. Okay I will get off my soap box.
We took the kids swimming the other day. We spent most of the time in the pool racing back and forth across the pool for gold, silver, and bronze medals. The rest of the time was spent on the diving board jumping off. Riley and Brynn were learning to do front flips and dives. By the time we were done swimming we were all starving.
