Harkin created a cape for an orphan. We are using a new subscription crate that makes things for a charity organization. I wasn't sure how it would go but he got the concept and understood what we were doing. We talked a lot about it and he helped mail it, so there was plenty of involvement.
Landon was busy making Issabelle a birthday present. She was watching but doesn't realize it is for her.
Today while the big boys were skiing we kept busy making a penguin bowling set and then just tinkering on our own with their cool new pencil cases filled with neat stuff.
We certainly keep busy around here. Everyone hits the pillow hard and tries to get a full nights rest.😃
Games have been played and invented. Harkin learned how to play backgammon and absolutely loves it! He wants to play every chance he can manage to find an opponent willing to play. He loves when it works out in his favor of course, but is learning you can't always win.
Issabelle and I have had Sunday afternoons to ourselves. They have been quiet, filled with crafting, stickers and snuggle time. Really quite nice.
We started a puzzle and are almost done. We love these- they have so many cool facts on them- definitely a learning experience.
Some tinkering has been going on. Landon made a levitating pencil holder. Learning all about magnets and the poles. He really enjoys his monthly boxes. Very neat activities each time.
Plenty of cold fresh air with some exploring or a bit of driveway ice hockey.
A few day have gotten us out to the mountain and a couple of performances in Burlington.
That's about it but it is just right for us at the moment.
It was a fun playtime with Daddy- as these two look forward to is so much during the week.
With nothing on the agenda our days seem to last forever and it was so relaxing. I am trying to take that into account for the new year. I want more relaxing, less stress, days at home, with lots of games thrown in.
