So, here's what we came up with so no one got hurt. ;)
To avoid cabin fever we went to a local coffee house in between the severe storms. Smoothie and muffin was shared among the kids. Books were read and some checkers were played.
Then we came home.
And built a giant fort (Micah kept us amused calling it a 'pork'...guess it kinda fit our situation at the time though!).
After we played in that a while, the girls totally wrecked it (and wreckage still sits in the front living room as I type). Then we played hide n seek. Love this game with the kids. I can load the dishwasher or fold laundry when it's my turn to count and nothing like a little quiet time for mommy while hiding in my 'super hard spots' then scaring them when they get close.
That night Daddy was home and I took Micah to a friend's bday party while the others were couch potatoes watching the Derby and some Nascar. (The Derby was for Kalla and Nascar on for the boys).
Then Sunday Zachary had a thing at church and a friend brought him home who stayed to play some Wii and indoor basketball.
We survived. They are back to school today...for now at least. And the sun found it's way back. And there's baseball tonight. Holding my breath to just get the next 3 weeks done and then summer break!
