In the span of two weeks, we’ve managed a camping trip with zero camping, three days without power, a Great Wolf overnight and some Covid. Life is weird.
Last week felt like the longest one in a while. George got promoted, so we started out with a small celebration. More fun than stressful, plus the house was cleaned early!
As spring continues, our focus seems to be shifting into physicality, any activity that requires body movement in some way. Definitely the trampoline is a daily outlet all year, but now it’s been a joy to get outside on bicycles or on foot, and no one seems to mind a lap around the ‘hood. Particularly in the rain!
First camping trip of the season! Our Wildling crew headed to Great Sand Dunes National Park for a group trip, and we had fun despite crazy winds + below-freezing temps.
The week of science experiments, if ever there was one. From DIY egg dye to rocket launching, we did them ALL.
We’ve had some personal growth this week as well – that usually feels awkward to me. Rosetta has a friend with a similar temperament, and that makes it hard for them to move on from disappointment when they play. They’re quiet, funny people, and disagreement shifts them into defensive mode.
For example, if I want to get the kids walking every day, I’d add an element – like searching for new spruce tips.
