fun-filled day

zac has kept me busy this summer. each night before bed, he'll ask what we're doing tomorrow. and each time i answer, he'll ask "yeah but what else are we going to do?" i'm constantly having to rack my brain for new ideas and ways to keep this boy entertained. so last monday we woke up and zac started choosing some popsicle sticks out of our little "boredom buster" jar...and he picked out a whole bunch of sticks and REALLY wanted to do all of the activities. really??? i thought? it would be so much easier to just say, "oh we'll do that tomorrow zac." tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow. i catch myself saying that a lot...and i'm realizing that tomorrow never comes. so we might as well just start doing things today. and so we did.

we invited our family over and spray painted our hair...then we had a pudding pie eating contest...

what an awesome day! I think you need to send me an e-mail with a list of what you have on your popsicle sticks in the boredom buster jar--definitely something we could use!

I'm with you-I'm always saying in a minute, or tomorrow and then I never do it-so way to go for actually doing it and being such a great mom/
