The kids have spent the weekend catching frogs. We live right behind a “protected wet land” which I call a swamp. (That’s our grey house in the background)
On Friday after school they met up with a neighbour friend and attempted to do their best at splitting up frog families. They managed to catch quite a few ~ of which I made them return to their home. Today they were up early and back out there again. I think in total they caught around 6 today and 1 rather large tadpole by the time I told them to give the froggies a rest, that was at 11am.
We spent the rest of the day shopping – with the neighbour friend – at Ikea and at Sam’s Club. Shopping with 5 kids (8, 7, 6, 3yrs & 10mo.) is interesting to say the least. I actually enjoyed it ~ my hubby gave me more grief than they did! We left Ikea having only spent $8.68 which is totally amazing and I have no idea how I managed that much restrain?! What I saved there ~ I spent at Sam’s… Oh well, I had fun. (What I did do at Ikea was change my mind on my kitchen cabinets and pick out lighting & checked out the dining room tables, I’ve given mine away…and decide on a counter top ~ we’re going with granite after all!!)
