|They're raining on our parade! (BFE, Georgia)|
What we are going to do instead...well, I'm not sure the kids like so much. I have a week long plan to scrub the house from bottom to top, in great detail. We will continue the spotlessness by revisiting every room for ten minutes each every day and doing quick cleanups. It works, so now the kids are going to do it with me. I've decided that we are going to all get up at the same time, eat breakfast together, get to cleaning (which after the first week will only take 40 minutes for the entire house, plus dishes and laundry) Then we will spend an hour reading (Miah's challenge) then an hour outside (Laurel's challenge) then we will eat lunch, and find some adventure. We have some quick day trips planned, all of which are educational. We are going to TRY to get Jay a four day weekend (Which he is owed from way back when he re-upped) and go to Gatlinburg to camp in the park. We might also TRY to see Savannah, but probably not. The kids are going to get to go to WW's every week, which they are happy about, and they are going to help me with the Idle Wednesday and 365 Days of Pictures posts. Hopefully this idea of mine will keep us from rotting away inside the house all summer. I hate the idea of wasting that much time. I'm hopeful that starting the summer off with the cleaning project will push them to keep with the schedule. We'll see.
