Spending time with y'all was fabulous. Thanks for being such a fun group. My prayer is that you will find some fun (and easy and inexpensive) things to use with your kids on those long summer days. Always cheering for you big!! ~ Joy :)


Extra Sanity Tips

plan ahead. use timers.

say "get to" instead of "have to."

teach free/independent play at a young age.

Don't forget the library. And local museums & parks.

Presentation Matters!!

numbered index cards taped on fridge
