The parents of five children decided to share responsibility for entertaining the kids (one of whom is Bruce) during the week between the end of day camp and the start of the school. Each parent took a different day of the week, Monday through Friday, to take the children on a different outing (including taking them horseback riding). They also each rented a movie (including Mulan) for the children to watch. For each day, determine who took care of the kids, that parent's child, the outing the parent supervised and the movie he or she rented.

1. The five parents were: the one who took the children bowling, the one who rented "Antz", Katie's parent, Mr. Bidwell and Mrs. Molinari.

2. The parent who rented "Finding Nemo" didn't take the kids bowling and isn't related to Katie.

3. Neither Mrs. Parker nor the parent who took the kids to miniature golf rented "Ice Age".

4. The children went roller skating the day before they saw "Monster's Inc.", which was the day before Mr. Sandoval entertained them.

5. The parent who took the kids skating didn't rent "Antz".

6. Mr. Sandoval wasn't the parent who rented "Finding Nemo" (which the children watched Thursday).

7. Mrs. Lee is Derek's mother.

8. Linda's parent, who isn't Mrs. Molinari and who didn't rent "Antz", entertained the kids on Friday.

9. Ryan's parent took care of the children the day after the parent who took the kids swimming.

Something about your teasers make me whip out the piece of paper. It's easy if I write out the five slots, but I can't seem to use the grid alone. It didn't take too long (10 minutes?) but I had tog et out the pen and paper, which makes me feel dunce-ey

I like how I had to keep going back and forth - made it more challenging. Very nice job!

Thank you. It was a nice composition and I think it took a bit longer to do than average grids.

Beautiful! I had to work on it for awhile every day from the time published until today (9/15) I peeked once to find an error, and finally managed.

I admit I had to go over the clues a few times and really look at the grid, but I got it (hey, what's with all the peeking at the answers?).

Thanks so much for writing this one.

For some reason I struggled with this one even though when I got it I realized that it was pretty easy...good job.

This one was really good. Got stuck and just sat staring at everything for like 3 mins. Something just clicked and it all fell into place. I love ones like this that make me think and work for the answer.

This was a hard one but I got it first try! I like when you have to figure out the answer vs. it just being handed to you

Great Grid...
