My life is full of homemaking projects, being a military wife, attempts to get organized, being a coupon "princess", making meals, doing loads and loads of laundry, being a special needs Mom, keeping memories and lots more. Welcome to my world, I am glad you stopped by!

Literally!! My kids love Fridays! We have a lot of rules/schedules during the school week but Fridays...well things change!
regular school mornings are not very fun!
During the week in the Turner home, there is:
*no video games (they are also not allowed to play on Sundays) at all
*no tv in the mornings
This is how Ivan feels about Fridays!
*M-Th my kids only have water at school.
*Bedtimes are very strict during the week.
*no soda is allowed
**As long as your chores have been done during the week and bedroom, playroom and bathrooms are clean...you can play video games or get on facebook (for those old enough)
**If you are "head to toe, ready to go" you can watch cartoons in the mornings on Fridays
**On Fridays the kids get to have either a juice box or chocolate milk (Yoohoo) in their lunch!
** Dinner on Friday evenings is verrrry relaxed! Usually something very kid friendly (pizza, hot dogs etc) and the kids get to have a soda!
A typical scene on a Friday!
Now that school is in, we have moved our family movie night to Saturdays. Once video games go off on Saturdays, they don't go back on! So we have a movie night and an appetizer dinner.
What about you? Do you do anything different to make the weekends special?
