summer RULES

Linton official summer rules.  Does the punishment fit the crime?

1.  Snack options will be fruits and vegetables.
2.  Chores must be done by 10 am or additional chores will be assigned.
3.  If you tell mom you are bored, she will fix that by forcing you to clean the garage.
4.  Explore America
5.  With every complaint that is ridiculous (i.e. "He is bugging me") you will do a lap around the block.  No limits.
6.  You must ride your bike or walk to a restaurant if you want to eat out.  If we don't eat out all week we will all go get a treat on Saturday.
7.  2 hours of screen time per week (excludes watching Phineas and Ferb on mornings mom can't wake up on time, and the occasional movie).
8.  No cancer will be tolerated.  Punishable by DEATH TO CANCER.

Last day of school.  Was it really 2 1/2 weeks ago?  Time flies when you're having fun I guess.  We are loving summer break.


  1. Love the rules, and phineus and ferb.

  2. We are going to adopt several of these rules at our house, especially the "no cancer will be tolerated" rule. Love these!

  3. I love Luke's Nanny McFee tooth. Has that thing come out yet?!

  4. This is so, so awesome! I love this. I have only one plan for the evening: sit down with the kids and write down our rules for the summer.

    Thanks for posting this!

  5. I love that the "rules" my kids made for themselves were always a ton worse than any we could have imposed. Looks like your do the same thing. Cuties.

  6. Love the rules! The way my boys are starting the summer, your boys may have some companions while jogging around the block!
