Weekends in The Horton Home are spent balancing a need to relax with a need to keep kids busy. Adam + I are currently watching Black Spot (if you need a Netflix recommendation – this is it). The kids spend time bouncing between the x-box and the trampoline. In true quarantine fashion, the kids have taken to having full blown conversation with the neighbor kids over the block wall while jumping out back. At least they’re staying out of trouble. They’ve all but given up on online schooling – so their days are free for alls at this point.
While trying to find ways to keep the kids busy and creative, I’ve found some awesome deals you can snag! Our kids l o v e art and all things that involve creating. A few brushes, some paint or markers, can keep them busy for hours. Our beautiful dining room table looks like it belongs in an art classroom. At first I was pissed about that, but I’ve learned to embrace it. I love that they find joy in art. At least they’re interested in one school subject. Also, I’m a lazy mom so I steer clear of projects they can’t do without my help. Like I said, I’m in the middle of a Netflix show – I don’t want to help with building something or teaching them how to fold origami. Dont come @ me.
