I know that today was kinda lame on the weather scale, gray, cloudy and cool. But it’s still summery-ish-ly and I’ll take it! Gray yes, but that just means we skipped the sunscreen and went outside anyway!
My yard is growing the weeds like crazy! I did take pics today, are you proud of me? I hear pics are an important part of a blog, I am just lame in that area. I will try to get better, but really I am just lazy. So feast your eyes on the jungle that is my yard:
Weeding aside, the kidlets have been playing their little hearts out! Today we ‘found’ a ginormous kite in the dark corner of the garage. There wasn’t much wind but the kids ‘flew’ it anyway. They had a BLAST doing it to.
I’ve been guilty of ‘no, we’ll take that to the beach and really fly it’, for far too long. It’s a toy. Toys are meant to be played with. If today is the day they want to play with it, who am I to say no? I am so glad I said yes and tied on that string because oh-did they have a blast!
Who needs wind when you have legs to run, friends to help and laughter filled smiles! That is all it takes to ‘fly’ a kite after all. I am so glad I said yes and tied on that string. It was worth every moment! They all really enjoyed the kite and we even found a second smaller one so two could ‘fly’ at the same time.
I am going to make this a YES! summer! Let them play, let them laugh and let them discover. I am sure I will learn soooo much and all of it will be priceless!
I can’t wait to see what they’ll discover next. I have plenty of weeding to keep me near them, and they have plenty of laughter to keep me weeding!
This might just become the best summer ever!
