What to do with these darn kids?

I was harassed by Nikki today about where her email was about what to do with her kids while I was in the middle of telling her about touch a Truck weekend so I am starting a blog...too much to keep up with all the emails. Send the address to whomever you like and feel free to drop me a line if you see anything out there! I will update with different Tax Free weekend sales on tomorrow.
