Happy holiday weekend, everybody!
Gar has been sick this week, which put a bit of a kink in our Labor Day plans. We’re staying home instead of driving to Pullman to spend the long weekend with Phil’s folks. Even though Gar is on the mend, he’s too sick to be away from home right now (and much too sick to spend 6 hours in the back of Phil’s Jetta). This got me thinking about all of the people looking for entertainment this weekend. Whether you’re at home with a sick kid (or pet), had to cancel plans because of unfavorable weather, or would simply rather spend a low-key weekend at home, I have collected some great boredom-busters from around the internet to keep the whole family entertained and happy.
