Getting our priorities straight...

I've always felt a little bit sorry for Shawn growing up in that God-forsaken land called the desert. I mean, how on earth can a child develop properly without GRASS to play in and snow to go sledding? So what did I do? Married him and am raising my poor children to be just as deprived.

Luckily due to the transfer my kids at least get to have a year of "True Childhood" or TC.

And luckily for them they have a mommy who has experienced TC and can help them out now to enjoy this grand opportunity!

So first things first. Before we had furniture. Before we had a place to sleep and more clothes than fit in our suitcase, we went to Target. We bought some essentials. Peanut butter, cheese, milk. You know. And a Slip 'n Slide.

We bought the MEGA monster crazy, over the top EXPENSIVE slip 'n slide, not that wimpy $7 one for my kids for one lousy summer! No way. We got the mother of slip 'n slides that required inflation and directions.

Kira complains that it makes her tummy muscles hurt. I suppose that is a downfall to running and slamming yourself intentionally into the ground to slide down a strip of overpriced plastic, but we are talking about TC here, it must be endured.

I love your new home. The kids look as if they are adjusting well to the move. I am jealous of the slip and slide. lol

Looks like those kids are having an awesome summer and yes that slip and slide is 10 times cooler than mine was...then again I tried to make my own. I'm surprised I didn't break a rib!

It looks like you are getting your money's worth out of it... or the kids are, at least.

LOL, Sunshine, I tried to make one too. Out of a tarp.I think we tried to use railroad spikes one time to hold it down, the rest of the time we used boulders. Super safe. ;)
