Helpful hint

My kids especially Britt want to take everything they own when we go to someone's house. Grandparents, friends, it doesn't matter everything must go. Well instead of arguing I have a new rule. We have to make a list to make sure everything comes home. The list must be neat handwriting Britt's case it must be cursive. Having to write it out really makes her think about what she really wants to take and with checking the list before she comes home she remembers all her stuff. The extra handwriting practice is great too!

Excellent idea...I'm going to have to borrow it. Bayley went to a sleepover last week and Billy asked as she was leaving, "Are you going on vacation for a week??" :-) Those girls!! :-D
