The week seemed to zoom by with so much activity. It was Spring cleaning week 1.
I spent the day on Monday in William's room. We moved some things out and organized it better. There is actually room to play in there and easy to find things. He was not very happy about it the first night. Change comes hard for him, but hasn't said a word about it all week.
Tuesday we joined our first CSA. Did some activities together and spent time outside.
Wednesday I was back to cleaning- Landon's room this time. He was very eager to help and was so willing to get rid of things. He loves how he has more space to play. I am really trying to do the "less is more" theory.
Some afternoon game time while I was busy cleaning.
Thursday we did lots of errands in the morning and then since we had been working hard all week we decided it was time for a local outing. We went hiking and spent 3 hours in the woods. Doing the expert trails. These were some big climbs. The boys thought it was great. Landon tells mama as he hops along the rocks. "Don't worry mom, I'm a secret spy so I can do this." It was a beautiful day and really just what I needed. I needed time with the boys. While at home cleaning and such we aren't always just being.
As I sat overlooking this amazing view, Landon was in front of me snuggled up close and William was giving me big hugs from behind. I sat thinking how lucky I am and grateful that they are with me and not in a classroom.
Friday I organized the basement shelves and then we headed to a book/tag sale where we sold much of the stuff that we had just cleaned out. The boys had a great time meeting some new friends and playing outside all afternoon.
It was a busy week but I feels so great to get rid of things and organize. I still have lots to do but it is a great beginning.
