School’s Out

FASHION DU JOUR |what to do with the family

The kids were out of school the other day so for parents that means finding something constructive for them to do so that they’re not left to their own devices. Raising a boy and two girls, it gets a bit tricky.  There’s always things Jaxon wants to do but the girls don’t and things the girls want to do but Jaxon doesn’t.  I get it.  Being the only girl, I fought that battle tooth and nail growing up.  99% of the time I succumbed to the pressure of playing tackle football or WWF {back when it was called that} Wrestling.

Normally, I’d give the kids school work to do and let Jayde color.  Other times the kids read books, draw or play with their games in the play room while we do some chores.  This day we brought the kids out to the basketball court for some exercise.  While Jaxon and daddy shot around, Julia practiced her made up gymnastics routine on the balancing beam also known as a chalky cinder-block wall and Jayde was fixated on flowers, butterflies and creepy crawlies in the dirt!  fantastic.

Julia enjoyed a healthy apple before her routine.

Somehow in all the ruckus we managed to lose one of Jayde’s earrings.

 Jaxon insists that the nothing-but-net swish is way better than using the backboard when it comes to layups and Jayde is ready for her turn.

Taking turns is a little over-rated in Jaxon’s opinion so Jayde resorted to finding her own ball.

This was me being artistically expressive…or something like that.

And we never saw this little blue ball again.

We walked back home and the kids fell asleep. Operation Knockout was a success.

It was a perfect day!
