Today, not yet into our school grove from vacation and being sick we spent the morning in the gorgeous sunshine- me reading then taking breaks to converse with the kids- our son and I bird watched, made bird feeders then he designed and drew contraptions out of sticks, marking each stick with a number then labeling the corresponding drawing on his paper to come back later and turn these sticks into usable objects. Love the imagination. Our daughter read several books, her more congested still than our son...she ventured out for a few moments of sunlight then went in to take a morning nap. An afternoon movie of the Croods- but this time our son watched it is Spanish stating it was time he learned a foreign language- where does he come up with these things!? GO FOR IT! And into the eve we will go to 4H, spend time with friends discussing animals and projects and having a bit of fun too! A nice few days off with dad and blessed the kids are finally on the mend from their illnesses.
Special moments in every day...seek them out, cherish them forever.
