Have you all met Becky at Life with Kaishon? If you haven’t yet, you need to. Becky is perhaps the most encouraging presence on the whole of the internets. She sprinkles her lovely & kind-spirited fairy dust comments wherever she goes. And her blog is FULL of love for her friends and family and kids in her neighborhood. Becky is part of a blog circle called The Creativity Project that posts a new theme/challenge each month. This month their theme is one that’s close to my heart: life at home.
I can’t believe our summer has come to a close and school has commenced. Summer was good this year. ‘Twas slow-paced. A few day outings. A quickie trip to WA. And a whole lot of time at home, filled with Legos, K’nex, puzzles, books, varmints, projects, Olympics viewing, and each other. Here are the lingering snippets of our life at home this summer …
Cookies were cooked.Books were read.Olympics were watched. Robots were built. Poptarts were consumed. Legos were rampantly out and about DAILY. Myst mysteries were solved.A visitor came to stay for 10 days.This is where he spent most of his time. Puzzles were put together (nearly 10,000 pieces in all).Crumbs were cleaned up. Every. last. one.A reptile was caught. And a habitat was built.There was gaming, food prep, friends, filming, & yard work.And bbq-ing. Lot of bbq-ing. And lots of messes (sigh).Windows were washed.Leftover (from the school year) science labs were sprinkled all over the house. All summer. (double sigh). And finally completed on the very last day in which they were due.Paper airplanes were built. And took flight.There might have been a pillow fort or two.And Mindstorm creations.
Yay for summer. And slow days. And time to play. Now it’s time to hit the books!!
