Nothin' Fancy

I've recently become very terrible about blogging. I've also become very terrible about making (great! fun! messy! spectacular!) activities for my kids. At church, we always talk about "seasons" as in "right now aint nobody got time for that!" Parenting can definitely be like that. At the end of the day, I'm too tired to plan and I'm desperate for some alone time with my love so I've stopped scouring pinterest, stopped raiding the dollar tree and stopped our scheduled "school time." I just want to play with my kids. I just want to love them and be spontaneous and do whatever!

Recently, we were outside in our ginormous sandbox. It technically used to be a patio but when we pulled up the uneven brick there was sand. Voila! The boys have drug out many dinosaurs and prehistoric mammals. We decided to create a prehistoric planet! The boys really enjoyed this. We made a pond, put up some vegetation and placed our animals. The kids worked on this for a long time until Dawsonator decided to destroy it. (sigh) Poor Ollie!

It made for a fun hour together. I've decided to embrace our freedom this summer. Starting in the fall, we'll be officially homeschooling and there will be much more planning involved. Right now, I'm just going to enjoy these three wonderful blessings of mine!

Ollie decided to put a super Croc in our pond!

Here's my sweet little miss!
