A day of fun...despite the cold!

With this week being break for the public school system, my after school kids have turned into all day kids a couple times this week.  I'm used to having toddlers and babies here at the house as my extras, but I wasn't too sure what I was going to do to keep them occupied all day and out of trouble! ;)  My original plan was to send them outside to play in the snow, but with out temps here lately that was quickly removed as an option.  
So I decided to make slime with them.  

I put all the ingredients in a quart size freezer bag so they could mix it mess free.  We still managed to make a mess, but it could have been a lot worse!

 They seemed to enjoy it!  It didn't work out quite like the directions so we had to add a little more starch to the mixture, but of course we learned that the hard way.  LOL

Then they went off and started playing with the animals.

At some point in time I got called in to take a picture of the whole clan...(they thought they should go get the cat too, but I opted for leaving her out of it!  I'm sure she appreciated it!)

Someone decided they needed to do wheel barrow races...I've never laughed so hard!  

Poor Zach!

We had a great day and I know the girls can't wait to do it again on Thursday!
