Let the fun begin

November is an odd month in the school calendar. The kids don't have a full week of school all month and we won't be on a regular schedule until next year because here comes parent conferences, Thanksgiving, Christmas, school programs and parties, New Year's and suddenly it's the middle of January and please, Dear God, let the kids return to school on a regular basis with regular hours!

Today the kids are off for Veteran's Day, and they are off tomorrow too. There's been a sleepover, video games since 6 a.m., mounds and mounds of sourdough toast, and a heated debate over Legos. I'm planning on tossing them outside to play for awhile -- a long while. 

I think it's the healthiest thing to do.

Especially since I just threatened to duct-tape Jack's mouth shut if he yells at his brother one more time over a video game...
