With the preparations of Ida on the way, cancellation of school, and life as we know it had come to a halt. I was desperate to find things to do with the kids so they didn’t tear the house apart. The kids were seriously acting like caged TIGERS! We decided to make a storm of our own (in a bottle). Kennedy thought it was great. I was just waiting for the minute that she would bust it, and I would have water and glitter all over!
We played LOTS of dress-up, and made a huge mess of the house! During courtyard last week at school, the kids made the indian outfits, and Kennedy was more than happy to become an Indian warrior princess.
The storm hit last night, and knocked power out for most of the night, and into the morning. This morning we were just chillin’ waiting for it all to come back on. The kids enjoyed BLUE pancakes for breakfast. I thought it looked like play-doh color, but the kids loved it! Nathan especially loved his front row seat!
When the rain quit, and the wind died down a bit, we made it outside to play for a bit. We went on a walk, splashed in the flooded street, drew with chalk, and painted rocks! Seriously, it’s so much easier when you can play outside!
