No More Archery In The House!

Sept 27, 2013
My boys love making bows and arrows out of hangers and lincoln logs. They were getting pretty good at shooting them so I kept telling them they couldn't play with them in the house anymore. Of course, no one listens to mom so this is what our nice T.V. looks like now . . . . .

Yep, it's broken. No more picture, just sound. The story the boys told me is Jake did it. hahahahaha! Jake always gets the blame but I think he really did it this time. The full story came out that he shot into the fan and the fan threw the lincoln log(s) into the T.V. Not sure why there is two cracks.
They were in big trouble. The boys were grounded from playing for a week, no T.V. (onviously), and no new costumes for Halloween. They also had to help around the house to earn money to buy a new T.V.  I made Jake call his dad and tell him what happened. Mike handled it really well. I was nervous because he loves the T.V. the most!
The no T.V. rule turned out to be a great thing! The kids have been so creative in their play. They have played with every toy in the toyroom and had so much fun! We didn't watch a lot of TV before but once the TV is gone it seems like you used to watch so much!
One of the things they discovered was the stuffed animal tote. I have a huge tote filled with stuffed animals in the toy room closet. They found it and have had so much fun playing with them. They ask who gave them which one, what it's name is and they have even taken them to show and tell at school.

Brown Day

In kindergarten they are doing a color unit. Each day for 3 weeks they had to wear a different color. Today's color was brown. I thought they were so cute in brown so I had to take a picture.

Jaileigh's Tiki Day

The kindergarten class room has a class bear that gets to come home each night with a different child. Jaileigh was the first of our family to get to take "Tiki' home. She was so excited!

Tiki is supposed to go everywhere and do everything with you. Then you journal about it and put a picture(s) in the journal.

They were playing in a box.

Trailer Park Kids

Our last day camping was on Sunday. Uncle Joe came up from Las Vegas so we got to go home to play with him.

Feeding the ducks one last time.

Annie and Anthony- I love his hands on his hips.
Jaileigh still practicing her skateboarding.
Anthony fell after the train ride and hit his head on the bottom step. He was being a little turd and pulled away from me, slipped and fell. A lady ran and got him ice. While I was taking care of him Jake took Annie over to the swings, helped her in the baby swing, did her seat belt up and then pushed her. It was the sweetest thing!
