what to do

Oh what do you do in the summer time when all the world is green!"I'm sure we have all run into those days when you don't want to watch tv anymore, especially your kids.It is sad when we come in from an outing and Rocco runs right for the remote to turn the tv on. what have I taught my kids.I'm tired of the tv teaching my kids.So, the other day, I had a box I had been saving for a costume or house or something for Rocco to play with.I told him we could make a Wall-e box. so we cut holes for arms and his body,he then proceeded to tell me that he need glasses,so we made some from cardboard,but what is an outfit without a hat, so we made a paper hat, and voila! here he is.I think he had fun! I am always looking for fun things to do with my kids,so if anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.I don't want to watch tv anymore!!!!!

That's too cute, what a great mom you are, we don't even have t.v. so I am always tring to entertain Paige, good thing she still naps alot. Well thanks for your memories, I totally still have my notes we exchanged back in the day as well. I also remember going to your house and your dad making the most delicious things, like this peach thingy and then we went to my house one day, later, and tried to make it, and it didn't turn out so well. I loved swimming with you, and I remember you are like the fastest runner I've ever met. Also you remember in Mrs. Nowaks class, my super soaker pen and I squirted her, and she thought the ceiling had a leak, and we busted up laughing so hard, and couldn't stop. I love old memories and better yet old friends! And I just enjoy all your family I've concluded Crum = a good time!

So cute, my kids love Wall-e. They would love to do this. They drew a bunch of different Wall-e pictures like Church Walle (he was wearing a suit) and pregnant walle (you can imagine that one, I was pregnant at the time). Ah yes, the great TV battle and when they get older the great video or computer game battle. Don't feel too bad there are others of us out there. It will get easier as Presley gets older because then they can play together. My kids love to play legos, tinker toys, lincoln logs, blocks, trains all that good stuff together. It's nice that they have each other, especially when I'm feeling like a bum.
