It’s Friday and I have a new article up on Empowered to Connect, “It Takes a Team.” If you have a moment to read it, I would love your feedback. Who is on your family’s team as you parent children from “hard places?” Did you every imagine you would need these people in your life? I sure didn’t.
It is the end of a full week of schooling, catching up, birthdays, and life. I have big home organizing plans for Saturday, we’ll see how successful I am.
This is what homeschool recess looks like at my house.
What these photos don’t show is the “swimming pool” the boys made in the driveway while I was busy working with Sunshine. I gave them the hose and told them they could water the plants; they were quiet and happy, so I promptly forgot to check on them…until they were happy for too long. I looked out the window and saw Eby sitting in the middle of a large mud puddle he and Little Man had created by blasting the hose on the gravel driveway until they eroded a pothole big enough for them to sit in.
You’ve got to credit them for their creativitiy — although Russ was not happy at all when he saw it! Keeping our driveway somewhat pothole free is one of his ongoing tasks.
Have a great weekend, friends.
