The deliciousness of "having to do nothing" is beginning to wear thin this summer. Or, I should say, beginning to wear thin for the Youngers. The Olders know the dangers of mentioning that they are bored or have nothing to do. It is entirely possible that Mom will remember that they have summer reading, encourage a review of fractions, or insist on the washing of the family cars.
So for the Youngers, it's a morning for "Painting with Shaving Cream"! This, of course, involves the filling of bowls with shaving cream,
the adding of food coloring,
the fascination of stirring,
and the delight of painting.
Let's see, what shall we paint? Let's paint the deck. The Man of the House says it needs painting . . . I'm sure this is not what he had in mind. Sure hope it rains before he comes home from work!!
Okay, that's an hour of play.
Game over! Did I mention it's time to work on summer reading?
