Kurt has a project management meeting for most of the day tomorrow, so Patrick and Bridget will be spending some time with us. There's not a whole lot to do on a freezing Saturday afternoon in January, but I wanted to have something fun and special to do with them.
Then an idea came to me. Jonathan found out that he needed a black t-shirt for part of his uniform for his indoor percussion competition on Saturday. I told him that we would go to Walmart. Then he said that he was told at band that A.C. Moore had black t-shirts for pretty cheap.
That's when the idea hit me. We could decorate t-shirts. They were on sale for $2.50 at A.C. Moore. I got everyone a t-shirt in a different color. Tomorrow, I'll pull out the fabric paints and t-shirts and we'll have a lot of fun. You gotta admit that for $2.50 per child, that's pretty darn cheap entertainment!! Not only that, but they'll have something to wear when it's all said and done.
I'll post pictures tomorrow. It's going to be a lot of fun.
