By 6:00 this evening, I was desperate. Katherine was whining. Both girls were wild. There was non-stop bickering. Rachel had spent the entire day as some sort of perpetual question machine. And we still had an hour and a half before bed time. So I dug out the (holey) hopscotch splash and sent the girls in to change into swimsuits.
The first sprinkler play of the summer was the best idea of the day!
