Getting there....

We're down to the wire folks.

Or, as Mrs. Eagle says, just two and a half days.

I collected and turned in my textbooks - all present and accounted for! (Thank goodness.)

I am trying to keep them busy so they don't a) kill each other or b) I kill them. So, we're making tetrahedron kites out of yarn, straws and tissue paper. These aren't the easiest kites to build, especially if you're from the world of velcro and can't tie knots to save your life, and that's a good thing. It keeps them busy. And keeping them busy is my priority. Because keeping them busy keeps my sanity.

But you've got to make it fun.

And besides, there's no one I've ever met under the age of 16 who can't resist opening a paper-wrapped straw by blowing the paper into the air. So, we open our straws by having the kids shoot the paper into the air all at once. It looks like a blizzard in the room, they scream and laugh, and it's a complete mess.

And I don't care.

It's fun.

And sometimes, you've just got to have fun with your kids.

I am so jealous! We have another week!! I bet you're so excited for summer. What a school year you've had! I look forward to jumping back into the craziness next year. Maybe my blog will become just as exciting and fun-filled...

I have to ask...will you be blogging during the summer? Should I sign you up for summer school now? LOL
