"Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind... We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith." -- Margaret D. Nadauld

Summer Grounding

Finally.

Finally!

Finally!!

It’s warm outside!!

It’s safe to say that summer HAS arrived!

For this week at least.

Sadly, in all this beautiful weather, Inigo got GROUNDED.

He’s such a good kid that he doesn’t usually need punishments that take away his privileges, but he lost them yesterday.

No friends. No electronics.
i.e. No TV or computer.
(We don’t own any hand held computer games.)

That left him with the choice of
wallowing & feeling sorry for himself and sweating inside the house all day
-or-
going outside to play.

I think he made the best choice.

He hooked up his new Slip-n-Slide.

And had a blast.

While he was slip slidin’ away, he said to me,
”Mom, this is the BEST GROUNDING EVER!!”

(For some reason he felt the need to wear his wetsuit. I guess it kept him from getting sunburned.)

OK, that was funny!
Bad thing about grounding is that YOU are the one grounded as well.

Uh, except your grounding isn't at all like the grounding I used to do.

Yes, summer might be here (knocking on wood). I LOVE the heat!

Looks like the perfect way to spend his time--much better than any computer game.

Great job on the pictures.
