Thursday, February 19, 2015It is a real struggle at times to figure out a plan of something fun to do with the kids. I hang out with them all day, every day. Sometimes I would rather do the dishes than play with my kids. Which is really sad.
Today I think I did a few things right though. It feels good to have a day like this now and then. It started bright and early in the morning when I took the two youngest to story time and then picked out 20 books from the library.
When my kindergartener got home they all wanted stories. We read book after book. We already got through half of them.
It was time to get outside though. I was kind of put off by the wind and suggested we go back inside, but they still wanted to play outside. So we grabbed the kite! We had fun trying to get it in the air and we eventually did and it stayed up for a few minutes before it came crashing down.
After that, our real adventure started. We just began venturing out and ended up walking across the field and I remembered our neighbors (3/4 mile away) just had baby goats. So my little troopers trucked across the dirt for just under a mile to see baby goats. We climbed in and out of dry canals and over dead trees. I put them through quite the little adventure.
When we got home, I let them help me make fruit pizza. It takes patience to let kids help with things, but the times I do let them help, it feels worth it. I enjoyed being with my boys today!
