Monday Musings

This week I am...

Getting ready for a weekend camping trip.

Shopping for glowsticks, s'mores, a replacement camping chair, fishing worms, and all the other stuff needed to take six people out into the woods for three days.

Hoping for good weather. I've camped in the rain with four kids before- and I don't really want to do it again!

Visiting the library to find a few good books to read while the kids fish.

Celebrating the 4th with a visit to the lake, a cookout, and the fireworks.

Making festive paper stars to decorate our windows (an idea from Family Fun-just cut stars out of patriotic scrapbook paper). 

Having this for dessert one night, by popular demand. The kids are in love with Food Network's magazine. 

Hoping the kids will get in a few practice sessions with Kahn Academy.

Re-reading a favorite Agatha Christie book

Ordering an ice cream maker. Because we've wanted one for years and the kids have been begging:).

Retrying the cola and Mentos experiment from this book (we had a bit of an issue the first time;)). 

Maybe trying the ziploc bag, baking soda, and vinegar one too. 

Hope you have a great week!
