  5. We go out geo-caching when the kids start to get squirelly. It's lots of fun, but even if the kids are in a mood, they know we can't stop looking til we find the cache! Usually by the time we do, they're in a much better mood!

  7. We keep pretty busy. I'm so thankful my kids have swim team for 2 hours every morning Monday through Friday. I think it totally helps keep them occupied.

  8. Family book clubs are fun. I'm rearranging the back yard to make a bar-b-q area in the back driveway on the large cement square. We can invite everyone. Together time is priceless!
