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.
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.
Lots of art space this week because of the super cold weather. We finished all kinds of paintings, knife sheath leatherwork and planning. All together, it was a low-key week of friend play and easy outings just to leave the house, combined with wrapping up projects we left alone when the weather was so nice.
This week we learned to use the snowblower + strengthened our ankles with some ice skating + sledded 3x + took a melting snow walk with an RC car spinning slush at everyone.
When we have a fun, outdoorsy week like this one, I’m so thankful our summers don’t end with butts in desks.
Last week, we did some camping with friends – and this is one of those things that’s consistently better with friends. I highly recommend it.
A week away, breathing and swimming in the mountain air, with our a 500-square-foot rustic cabin to hide in from the hail equals some pretty zen kids and parents.
We went outside every day! For hours. Please witness my glory – for I have suffered in its creation.
