Okay, we are on day three with no school because of Hurricane Ike! Our schools still are without power. Thank God we have ours!
Last night, I was lying on the couch with a migraine. And it dawned on me that all five kids were sitting together on the floor working a puzzle together. They were soooo loud. But I didn't care. Even with my pounding head. It was one of the few times I've seen them all work together like that. No fighting, no tattling, not doing something they weren't supposed to be doing. Just working together. I think they must have done three different puzzles together......
two puzzles: $30
migraine meds. $55
kids not fighting AND working together....PRICELESS
