I'm always hollering at the kids to "go outside." It's been beautiful here lately and there's no reason to stay in the house. Lest you think my kids sit around and play video games after school--no, they don't. They come home from school, empty out their bags, get a snack, do homework, and they are allowed 1 tv show (usually "Cyberchase" or "Arthur"). Then I get 'em out!
Check out what Brett made the other day:
A nice slingshot, from a birch branch he said he found on the ground. So far-the slingshot has not been used against his brothers, but it's only a matter of time.
