Back to Basics...focus more on the kids, with a bit of food, fashion and fun for me.
Look: A bit of time spent in the front waiting for Daddy to come home. We drug out some of the outdoor trucks and snow shovels. Our side front yard has a slope, so the grass is spotty. This makes for the perfect little 10 minute activity. The kids dig a bit, fill up the truck, dump the truck and repeat.
Learn:My kids are outdoor lovers. Sometimes they grab whatever is around and begin doing something. like this day Gavin was carrying around his truck, Chelsea had the shovels and a match was made. Other times I pull out tools or toys to help their imaginations get started. No matter how it starts, we really enjoy our time outside.
Love: What is not to love about doing some good old exploration while waiting to greet Daddy!
