Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

Just Chillin

It was 98 degrees today and HUMID! In weather like this, I like to just hang out in some air conditioning. (Actually, I like to relax on a raft in a pool, but with 3 little kids, this is just impossible). However, my kids' idea of hanging out involves one thing: making huge messes in every room in the house. I was tired of cleaning up, so we ventured outside…not far…just on the back deck…but away from any box of blocks, puzzles or legos to be emptied and mixed together into every large pot and bowl I own.

To keep cool in the scorching humidity, we decided to play some ice games.
First we wanted to see who could melt their piece of ice on the glass table the fastest.

Then we raced some cubes across the table.
Next we decided to see who could slide their ice closest to the edge without it toppling off.
Cameron then tried to see how far he could spit his cube.
While Max decided it was more fun just to throw his ice off the deck to see it crash on the patio below.

Ella on the other hand had no interest in what the boys were doing, and really understood the true meaning of staying cool indoors WITHOUT driving mommy crazy by dragging out every toy in sight. Just looking at the fiasco they were creating caused her to literally spit with disgust!
