These are two of our favorite things...
The first day of school vacation week was a lounging day. The kids stayed in their PJs all day and they played with Moon Sand for a looonnng time! We love Moon Sand, but I think we have to do something to prevent MOST of it from getting on the floor! Daddy does not do Moon Sand for this exact reason; he saves it for Mommy. I don't mind, it forces me to mop the floor afterwards to get rid of the slippery, sandy feel it has.
On another note, I have decided to go without my social networking for Lent and will not be logging onto facebook for awhile....and Mr. E has decided to go without computer games ...Mommy is VERY excited about that!
