Ice blocking and 30 other fun things to do with your kids!

Now that my kids are in school our routines have gotten so crazy. Football, scouts, cheerleading, gymnastic, pta meetings, church callings, (I could go on and on and on) Our weeks are just jammed pack. I feel like most days I live in the car! So I made a “deal” with my kids…Every Saturday we will get up and crank out our chores (They have to have their room cleans and then do 2 chores around the house–wipe down baseboards, clean windows, vacuum the stairs etc) When we get it all done we get to do something fun! Last week we took advantage of the nice weather and went ice blocking! Basically sledding in grass!
