I haven't posted in some time. I tried to upload some pictures of the pumpkin patch but my "add picture" icon won't work. And, I've also noticed I can't comment on anyone's blog either. Stupid blogger.
So. We went to the pumpkin patch.
Without pictures, it just seems too boring.
Hopefully, I can try back later and it will work. Who knows!
I also took all 4 kids to see the Toy Story double feature. It cost me $42.50 in admission. I bought snacks at Wally World the day before, spent about $15. So, it was an expensive day. BUT!! We had the entire theater to ourselves!! Me and my 4, my friend and her 2 boys. One man came in with his little girl about half way through the first movie (why would you pay that much to only see part of a movie??) but that was it!! To me, with my personal space issues, it was totally worth it.
I didn't have to worry about the kids talking and disturbing others.
They could change seats as often as they liked.
During the break between the movies, they ran up and down the aisles, something I would NEVER let them do in a full theater.
In other news, I found a somewhat solution to the fighting I talked about in the last post--chores. Lots and lots of chores.
If they are busy working for me, they have no time for fighting! And, they unite in their hatred of chores so really, I'm giving them bonding time. And getting a cleaner house for it. "Win win" I say!
