Project 365 - Week 13 (June 24-30)
Even in our own backyard there are so many great things to do. Sometimes you have to be creative, but other times the fun is just right there waiting for you, asking you "What took you so long to find me?" This week was one of those weeks. We had no trouble discovering the fun.
Day 85/365 "Slip 'N Slide"
Sometimes you just have to cave to the chaos and dive right in to the littles' swimming pool!
Day 86/365 "A New Pet"
It has been several years since we have seen lightening bugs around here. When we saw them twinkling their little lights in the backyard, we had no choice but to postpone bedtime to go out and catch them!
Day 87/365 "Trouble Maker"
So he thought he would dive into his sisters' paint collection while I was helping them wash their hands in the bathroom. Normally he follows us and wants to wash his hands too, but when there is something new and exciting on the table......
"Oh, hey mom...nothin'"
"OK! Fine! I did it!
Day 88/365 "Porch Talk"
The benefits of having minimal rain this summer is that the mosquitoes stay away! We have been able to enjoy our porch without being attacked. Every night after the littles go to bed we enjoy some time together. Sometimes we talk, sometimes we watch Netflix on my tablet, but we always enjoy each others company.
Day 89/365 "The Big Handsome Man"
I have not ridden my horse since I was pregnant with my first. He doesn't seem to mind the break. He gets to eat all day and he gets treats when I walk past.
Day 90/365 "Woo Hoo!!!"
Sometimes you just gotta jump up and dance!
It's nice to take a quiet moment to yourself after a busy week and eat some chocolate.
