Hello! In this space I'll be sharing what some of us are up to while we're at home. I can't wait to share what you and I have been doing!
Thank goodness for this beautiful weather we've been having! We've been spending as much time in our backyard as we can! We had a large cedar tree die off last summer and have been talking about cutting it down to build a platform/fort. With all of our spring break plans cancelled, what better opportunity than now! Gio's been helping haul wood & clean up. Today we found the culprit that killed the tree.. he's kept one of the beetles to observe. PE & science all wrapped up together!
A couple other activities that Gio is finding to keep busy is cleaning out our planter boxes and planting some spring seeds & we hope to be enjoying some sugar snap peas in about 6 weeks. He's also enjoying the strategy of the game of "Life" and is (so for) reigning champion! Thanks for reaching out, I'll go to the blog with him to check out what his friends are up to!
Working outside enjoying the fun shine!!
Aiden wants to tell everyone he had a good birthday and he got a new fishing pole and tackle box plus the things in the pictures
Samuel hasn't had the best start, his great granny who he was extremely close to passed away. But to take his mind off of it he has been helping take care of his animals, and playing outside with his brother, and he's been doing lots of art and crafts.
Marcos is enjoying the sunny days, but he says he wants to go back to school.
Austin had been enjoying “homeschooling” with his cousins. Daily walks seeing all sorts of things! And he got to take his 1st flight!
Getting our painting on!
Marshall and Zane have been playing outside, riding their bikes and enjoying their extra time at home (although I fully expect them to start complaining about seeing their classmates any day now).
This week we went on walks in our neighborhood almost every day. One day we even went on a walk to the local cemetery. It was a good 4 mile walk round trip.
This morning we participated in Al’s Garden Center’s kids club (via YouTube) and planted strawberries. The boys are excited to see them grow and we hope we can keep them alive and healthy.
Today we finished our day with a backyard fire and s’mores. We may not be able to go camping, but we enjoyed the fire anyway. We feel so blessed to live somewhere we can do this.
We are trying to keep busy and enjoy the sunshine while we have it. We are so thankful we have so much space to get outside and enjoy our country life.
