I don't want to rub it in- but it's a beautiful day here and it kills me that my kids are inside. So I made a list of things we need done in our house and sent the boys on a Service Scavenger Hunt. (They divided themselves into teams and headed out the door. ) I told them to knock on doors and go do some service! (secretly hoping they would do a few chores around our house too.) After an hour and a half- they came back for the prize.
