Ahh, Summer!

Even thought the temps in NE Ohio are way below normal, (upper 60's!) it is definitely feeling like summer around here. Since we got back from our vacation we have had kids in our backyard everyday, all day long and that is just fine by me. When they aren't in our yard they are running back and forth between their friends yards. The fort and trampoline are being put to good use for sure! Good thing I stocked up on Popsicles!



Finally starting to get back into the groove of everyday normal life since getting back from Disney. I am all caught up on laundry...I think.



We have started a monetary reward system for the boys. Every time they do a chore, help out around the house or I just catch them doing something plain 'ol nice they get money! We are starting out small, just quarters. The bigger the chore, the more they can earn. I think they like it because Zachary just woke up to tell me that he not only made his bed and straightened out his room but made Connor's bed and my bed! I like this!

Ok, now I have a PSA. Please, if you are over 70, male, and very hairy...do not wear a tank top with shorter than short silky shorts to Taco Bell! People, if I said he was wearing Daisy Dukes that would be too long! Now that I think about it, if you are any age please don't wear underwear longer that your shorts. Erika and I almost lost our lunch trying to keep all four of our boys from staring! PSA over.

Busy weekend ahead full of baseball games and scrapping with Nicole. I better get started printing pics.

the money thing doesn't even work for my child. i guess i just need to pick one thing and really stick with it until he gets it.

I'm totally cracking up!!!

glad you're almost caught up after vacay. and you must have sweet, awesome kids if they work for quarters (well, I know they are sweet and awesome), because i have actually heard of some who demand minimum wage. LOL
