Staying home with your siblings doesn’t have to be a nightmare. With a little creativity and compromise you can have a great week. Here’s how we schedule our week so everyone knows what to expect and how each of us can help.

Sunday: Drive-up church and taking turns calling or texting family members. At night we watch a funny movie or AFV to get everyone laughing.

Monday and Wednesday: Sprinkler play at home in the cool evening. We get to play in the water and mud and my mom gets her garden watered.
