Sick day = DIY Play-dough Day! School is starting soon!

I so hate it when my boys get sick. They are ALL THREE recovering from either a cold or really bad allergies. Not only are they miserable, but so is Mommy! They haven’t slept well for 4 nights now, so I feel like a Mombie! ha!

Trying to entertain 3 kids sick, isn’t easy. Especially when all you feel like doing is sleeping! (only if the boys felt that way too Ha) We can’t anywhere either, or out side for that matter, since its been raining her for a few day straight. So I decided to make some play-dough. We used to make this all the time, but haven’t in awhile so this was something fun to do again.

The boys usually help me measure and mix everything, then I cook it over the stove top.

Click HERE for the recipe we used and below is the video we did from our Thomas channel:

 

We love this play-dough, it’s so warm and calming and it smells great too! This is definitely our favorite recipe.

What are your favorite things to do at home when it rains or when the kids are sick? Let me know in the comment section, I need MORE ideas, especially for Baby A for when the older too are back in school.Which brings me to the next subject…

SCHOOL.. more like ….KINDERGARTEN! Eek!

Zieke starts Kindergarten in 3 weeks.. and I am NOT ready for it. He will be gone from 8:30am – 3:30pm. Such a long time. Zieke and LJ started preschool last year but were only gone for 3.5 hours. So by the time I took them, came back, had lunch and Aaron took a nap, it was time to get them.

I have been debating about Homeschooling him, but just don’t know where or when we will be moving. Some of the schools in our area are ok, some.. not so much.

Our school system now a days are so out of wack. Not to mention, school shootings, peer pressure and the list goes on..

I told my Husband we will see how his first few weeks go and then revisit it then.

I mean, can I even do it? I guess for the first few years, but after that.. not so sure. Math was definitely NOT my strongest subject, BUT I feel I have accomplished a lot in life, and I was Homeschooled.

We were part of a Homeschool group were we had music, drama, art & gym. It was great! A lot of people seem to think Homeschoolers are odd, but really we aren’t! We were socialized just as much as any other public school attending kid. Just because we didn’t go somewhere everyday didn’t mean we weren’t social. We went to two groups per week, plus we were active in our church.

So, I dunno. Life is busy too.. I guess I will continue to think and pray, while trying to stay awake.. ha!
