7:06am -- I hung out the first load of laundry for the day.
It looks like ice cream but it's a mixture of cornstarch, water, and cocoa. The kids LOVED it.
This is dish soap mixed with water and food colouring. You mix with a mixer and they last for a long time. Quite honestly, I think this would have been more exciting for younger kids.
3:34pm -- While the kids played (and played and played), I cleaned up the vines our friend had cut off the house the night before, and did some deadheading in the front bed. I was going to mow the lawn but it was too hot. (Also, I've come to realize that I would never survive in the Southern US in summer.)
Bear Paws (we buy them "for the kids" but I've become a little addicted to them), ran up and down the basement stairs nine times (to get to an even 50 floors on my Fitbit!), and uploaded the pictures for this blog post.
And that was an exciting day in my life. Today will involve some more unpacking, a lot of laundry folding, and me praying that the three kids play as well together today as they did yesterday. And oh yeah -- it's raining so we won't be going outside today unless things get really desperate. Ha! Thankfully I have a few more Pinterest projects up my sleeve.
