This has become a recurring habit lately. Yesterday Daniel almost jumped in one of our rain barrels "for fun" instead once he was caught he dunked a stuff animal in.
By dinner time I was frustrated and we had to find something to keep them moving yet make them realize they were in trouble. So we made them do exercises. YUP! the sat up against the wall for 30seconds, then the held cans over there head, then they did arm curls when their arms got tired, then push-ups, then sit-ups...anytime they got in trouble they were back at it. Liza was not disobeying but loved every minute of it! She was doing it with the boys, enjoying the exercise LOL It had us laughing.
Anyways, Jake is great at planning lessons. He often invites MR. Family Home Evening guy. (WHo has a whole lot of energy considering he gets up at 4am!). Tonights lesson was precious (in a rumorous way)!
three jugs of water
three measuring cups of three different white substances
three packs of kool-aide
four cups (one for each kids)
Read the kool-aide packets directions. Have kids check water level and white substance levels to make sure they are correctly measured. Have each kid pour a cup of white substance into their jug, and kool-aide packet and mix. Then have kids sample each jug at the same time.
Our kids mixed the first jug and were so excited (after all they never get kool-aide)! They tasted it I loved their faces. I wish I had had the camera out!! Substance #1 was salt. Michael cried for about five minutes she was so disgusted with it. LOL it was priceless. Only Daniel and Rianey tried #2 (flour) and everyone had 4 glasses of #3 (sugar). We talked about rules and how they are there to help us and to keep us safe. We have the option to not do as all the other do like Eliza trying jug #2, and we can warn others of the dangers. Or we can follow directions/rule/procedures and enjoy our delicous kool-aide.
Yet another one for the books babe. Good job!
Have a great week!
