Last year we started having a no TV SUMMER and it was so worth it. The money we put towards our dish satellite gets put towards new games instead. We always start on June 1st and end Sept. 1st.
Just so you understand. Will does think he is going to die for these 3 months, but we just remind him that he didn't die last year. Really none of our kids would say they think this is a good idea, but they all survive.
Jake has to listen to baseball on the radio and computer. We go to Sky Socks games. (thank the Lord for $2 Tuesday at the ball park) Never mind the fact that we spend at least 3 night a week watching Jake actually play baseball on his team.
I am telling you if Jake ever plays professional baseball I am going to write a book called, From stretch marks to bench marks, because I got both from him.
So here's the thing: Oh, I know the summer will fly by and I will be crying when it is time to go buy more school stuff but I cherish these days of washing grass stains off of clothes and saying go wash your feet instead of put away your shoes and buying Popsicles for the neighborhood kids. We love summer!!!!!!!!!!!!
