So, it’s Spring Break here and my kids have over 2 weeks off from school. They’re excited, and while I’m excited from the time off from homework duty and getting up early to help them get ready, I know that by the middle of the first day they’ll be asking me for ideas of things to do, and they never like any of MY ideas – probably because the first thing that always comes out of my mouth is to clean their bathroom.
But not all my ideas involve cleaning. Last weekend my husband and older son went on a Scout camp out, and when my younger son picked my brain for things to do, I really thought I’d come up with some good suggestions.
“Mom, can’t you just try to be fun?” he demanded, rolling his eyes.
So, I guess not.
Speaking of fun, the fire pit is up and running. The kids have had friends over and we’ve cooked marshmallows and hot dogs over it. It’s definitely not as effective as a wood burning fire pit would be, but we don’t miss that smoky smell and know that we’ll still be able to use it in summer months without getting absolutely cooked ourselves.
