We strayed a few small steps from the Hearth today.
The sun showed Himself this morning, and Daddy was lured outside (with a harvesting basket, even) before he had to scoot off to work this afternoon.
Of course everyone followed.
And played with Legos.
And just Played.
Maddie is most interested in writing letters this last little while.
Today I got out a few tracing sheets and a couple of books (which Trev has never been interested in) for practicing printing.
Evidently her favorite letter is F-- she writes it over and over again. And T. And squares.
"I have four babies.
"Do I have three babies or four babies?""Looks like you have... four babies."
"I have a handful of babies."
"Yes you do."
Trev won this one.
Trapped me neat and tidy.
Have spent time today watching ScoobyDoo. And playing a bit of Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs. And lots of JumpStart Third Grade.
(So far when I've peaked in I've seen lots of algebra [ ___ + ___ = 23 ], loads of constellations, music patterns, sentence structure, and element information relating to the periodic table. Sounds good to this Mama.)
Wearing wintercoats while snuggling with Annabelle. ???
And of course Mama has to step into the garden as evening cometh.
Little Son is clamoring for Chocolate Chip Cookies... so it looks like back to the Hearth we go.
Life is Good.
