Tuesday Talk-Summer Ideas

Happy TUESDAY!

I'm sorry I missed you yesterday!  I had half a post written thinking we'd get home from Nixon's baseball tournament in time for me to finish before bed.  Well, delay after delay and then two wins put us arriving home after ten o'clock.  I'm basically useless after 9:00 p.m. so there was no way that post was getting finished.  You'll see it on Thursday.  ;)

Today is TUESDAY TALK!  That day once a month when Fancy Ashley and I join forces to chit chat about anything and everything.  We'd love for you to join us!

We're on week TWO of summer around here.  My boys have baseball camp this week, we've been getting ready for our trip, I'm trying to leave an organized house, etc...so things have been busy so far-and it's only Tuesday!  We typically hit up the pool most days for a couple hours...to burn some energy, hang with friends, and have fun-it is summer after all!  But when we come home, my kiddos want to be couch potatoes.  On days where they spend three hours at sports camp and then follow it up with swimming for three hours, I don't really mind.  But other days, I'm trying my best to prevent having four little lazy bones.  What is your favorite indoor activity {afternoons can get HOT here in Texas mid-summer} with kiddos?

*Games
*Cards
*Books
*Crafts
*Movies

I typically make them all go upstairs and play.  It's amazing what they can do and how their little imaginations can create!  Please share your suggestions!  I'm sure not only me-but many other mamas would love some ideas!

Thank you for reading today, friends!

My kids have been making a lot of forts lately! They make it BIG inside and then get cozy in their fort with books, coloring, games or I'll let them watch a movie inside. There's something about a fort that makes them all happy :) .

We do "Art Hour" when my 5 year old gets tired in the summer afternoons. Literally anything... I will cut big pieces of paper and let her glue foam stuff, stamp it, stickers and markers, whatever she wants! Sometimes I'll give a prompt like make me a picture of your favorite this or that or something you want to do this summer. Other days it's necklace making, Play-Doh, watercolor painting, or here are some paints and plain paper, do your thing! Dance competitions, capture the flag in the house where mom hides it, reading time, or I will pull out practice books for school that are pretty easy, but just to keep skills up.

I thought you had a pool in your backyard. Am I remembering right?
