Wednesday's Wit....Yup, gonna be a bear!

     We are going on a big family vacation next week. My parents, brother and sisters, spouses and all our 14 children are renting a house on the beach. It is the highlight of my summer and I can't wait! While I'm there, I'll transform into "Auntie Ayn, Activities Director".  I've got lots of fun activities and crafts planned,.... YES, CRAFTS! I also have a variety of materials for the kids to do self directed art if they wish. I try to do a least one planned activity each day. This year, we're making things that we can use at the beach. I have a kite project, water bottle holder, visors and a few pirate related crafts. We'll also have a real  treasure hunt and games. I started this so the kids that didn't nap would have a "quiet" time each day and parents can take a break from all the hawk-eyed watching of kids on the beach! I know we will have lots of fun ~ little kids on the beach are always tons of fun!
    So yesterday, as I was trying to get everything packed and still do all the things a mom does,  I got this in an email. It felt so appropriate at the moment, that I thought I would share it for today's Wednesday's Wit. We all have those days when you wish you had just a little easier! Hope you moms enjoy it!

Okay, so it's not that bad, but there are those days....   ;-}

P.S. I'll try to get a post out about some of the fun things we're doing, but I may be having too much fun! It may have to wait until I get back!


  1. Woo-hoo! Vacation! Have a super time with your family. I know those are the best trips. :)

  2. Hey Ayn I too holiday with my entire family, 23 in all and we wouldn't have it any other way. Enjoy your holiday!

    Oh and I reckon the life of a bear sounds pretty darn good!
