One More Week of School

One Long Hot Summer+Four Kids+One Mommy= BIG TROUBLE
I always wanted to be able to spend the summer with the kids. I imagined our days filled with arts and crafts, playing in the park and swimming. Now that I'm faced with dealing with four bickering children for almost three months I'm not feeling it.
I know I should be thankful to have been given this opportunity for Quality Bonding Time, but really what am I supposed to do with these people ?? Being unemployed I/we don't have the money for a vacation or amusement parks.

So here's my short list of Cheap/Free Summertime fun for the Family:
Summer reading club at the library
Make homemade ice cream
Play on the trampoline (must fix it first)
Outdoor movie night (take a tv and dvd player out on the patio and watch a movie or two)
Craft Projects
See fireworks on the 4th of July
Paint Pottery at the Mall @ $6 per person
Tie Dye T-Shirts
Go to the $1 movie (It's .50 per person on Tuesdays)
Buy a Pool for the Backyard (probably the most expensive thing, but it will get a lot of use)
Go to the Zoo (we have a season pass)

Welcome to My World- Intro

My name is Kathy. I'm the adoptive mother to four children. Pinky and Daisy are my eight year old twin daughters, Pickles is my 11 year old son and 'Cole is my 13 year old daughter.

All my life I knew my children would be adopted. I knew it the same way people know that grass is green or the sky is blue. I felt it all the way inside my soul. I imagined having a large family, ten kids. LOL Now I'm pretty sure there's NO WAY I could handle ten. Six maybe...but not ten.

Some of my favorites are:

Favorite Movie : Yours, Mine, and Ours (The old one, not the remake)

Favorite Singers: Tina Turner, B.B. King, The Fabulous Thunderbirds

Favorite Colors: Purple and Blue

Favorite Time of Day: Nighttime, after the kids are in bed

Favorite Actor: Hugh Jackman --->

Favorite Food: Lasagna

Favorite Animal: Dogs

Favorite Vacation: Myrtle Beach

Favorite Thing to Do: I just started gardening, so that's pretty cool. I love to surf the internet, I loved painting but it's been a long time since I did it.
