What to do, what to do? We spend most of our time at home (obviously), so sometimes the days tend to stretch on endlessly. I love my job as a stay-at-home mommy, but sometimes I run out of inspiration. I know we don't live in a big city with endless opportunities for entertainment, but we at least have a few things going on around here.
#1 - The Splash Pad. Milo loves it. He runs around screaming and splashing in every available water spout and then wipes his face on my shirt (right around bootie-level) to get the water out of his eyes. Lucy is touch and go. Maybe it's because she's a girl, but I never know what to expect of her. The last time she went, an older boy tried to hold her hand and asked if he could dump a bucket of water on her. She was done. She spent the rest of the time holding me or my mom. At least it made for some cute photos?
#2 - Hopscotch. I drew a simple grid in the driveway and these little people have been hopscotching it up. Too bad I don't have a video of either of them saying "hopscotch." I guess that will be free fun for another day.
#3 - Blueberry picking. While it's not free, it's really close to it, and it makes for a complimentary snack as you go. We went to Grimes Blueberry Farm today, and these little people had a blast. Milo only ate 3 blueberries because he was so busy filling his bucket. Lucy ate every blueberry she could get her hands on and ended up squatting under a blueberry bush to poo. To each his own, right? And note: no adults may wear sleeveless shirts while picking, so don't go thinking you're going to get some sun. You will be forced to wear a men's short-sleeved button-up dress shirt. But they will be nice enough to loan you one...
Anyway, there are the three things I have pictures of. I'll keep you updated as the summer rolls on, because there's all kinds of fun to be had before I start homeschooling this little man some kindergarten. Oh my word. That's a discussion for another day.
