School needs to start.
Let me say it a different way. In order for Mom to keep her sanity, she desperately needs school to begin. Now.
The end of summer is almost always this way – the kids have so much fun in June and July, but everything starts to look boring in August. We’ve been trying to keep them busy with canning and garden work, but it truly is time for everyone to have a schedule and activities to keep their growing minds occupied.
Just yesterday, I couldn’t handle the crazy amount of energy displaying itself out in my living room in the form of wrestling any longer. Not one more minute of it. So out the door they were banished to run around the house five times.
Sometimes I’m mean that way.
I will have to hand it to the kids, though. Boredom is sometimes good for inspiring new excitement in old toys! They dug out the Legos and dominoes and have had them spread out all over my living room and kitchen. Besides that, we babysat a big, old dog for several days that loved to lay in the middle of my kitchen – especially in front of the refrigerator.
God has definitely been working on my patience.
So why does it feel like I have received a D-?
The kids put together many domino towers and I promised to share two videos of them on the blog. Just in case your kids are having the “summer doldrums”, too!
So here you go.
