Anna played with play dough for the first time this month! She thought it was pretty cool stuff, and then decided to try eating it. We’ll try again in a couple weeks, but in the meantime she is enjoying several of the activities from this list of craft and activity ideas for kids who eat everything!
Mike was gone for a week in March. This picture was taken the day after he got home – we’re all glad he’s back! He usually travels a lot, but lately he’s been around more, and we got a little spoiled. Mike’s work is slightly less busy since they hired a few new people, and we’re hoping that will translate to more down time with him!
I had a lot of fun with my kids this month, including a wonderful ballet outing with seven-year-old Emma. I can’t believe how quickly they are all growing up! Wasn’t it yesterday that Lily (three, above) was grabbing her toes like Anna (below)? And shouldn’t Anna be a newborn, not a full-fledged baby with lots of opinions and a delightful sense of humor?
I’m still on the simple track for April:
- Continue to declutter. Focus area: gratitude, simplicity, and responsibility
- Spend as much time outdoors as possible. Focus area: gratitude, simplicity, and education.
- Get some gardening and landscaping work done (Mike and Emma are painting our bench as I type!) Focus area: gratitude, simplicity, and responsibility.
- Enjoy a week off school with the kids! Focus area: gratitude
What are your goals for April?
