A photo a day - all summer long - day one
I totally copied Stacy Julian today and gave my kids summer bingo cards... the general idea is that they can mark off spots on the the cards as they do the activities listed - when they get a bingo, they get a ticket and tickets can be redeemed for fun stuff like popsicles, sleep overs and even money.
Anyway - it was a wonderful day for the kids. They were building things, reading in secret spots, making and editing videos, baking, doing Wii fit, making blanket forts and capturing and observing bugs... all good things for kids to do in the summer and not once did one of them come to me and complain about being bored.
In these pictures, Savannah and Ethan were building structures - using the same building materials (marshmallows, toothpicks, cardstock and tape) to see who could build the structure that would hold the most pennies without collapsing... they totally came up with this themselves and were busy with it for over an hour.
It's going to be a good summer.
