Hi there! I hope you all are doing well. I don’t know about you, but we are patiently waiting for warm Summer weather, but instead, mother nature has given us a few nice days here and there. Regardless of the weather, the kids and I have been walking around our neighborhood almost daily and we got caught in the rain the other day which was surprisingly fun! I really try to get the kids out of the house at least once a day. It seems to improve everyone’s mood. We will walk different routes to keep it interesting and new.
Another fun thing the boys have been intrigued in is behind our house is what I refer to as “the wilderness”. It has lots of sagebrush, larger trees, and even a trail that we walk up during our walks. They love to pretend they are preparing for battle. I keep a walkie talkie and the boys have one and they give me status reports on what is happening. They have to stay close to the fence and only can venture out when I am standing where I can see them. I love their imaginary play and anytime we can get outside means less iPad and tv time (which I have to admit with the quarantining it seems like all the rules went out the window on monitoring their tv time). However, once the warm weather hits I’m confident we will be splashing around the pool, playing basketball, and hanging outside all day!
Have you developed any new routines or activities lately? I hope you have a wonderful week! Xo
