And I cook ... why?
Started running/walking this week. Turns out I can run faster than I thought - and for a longer distance than I thought. A friend pushed me a little outside my comfort zone, encouraging me the whole way. What a wonderful friend! Continued today and am now as proud of myself as she is of me. And I cannot believe I'm not more sore.
The Colonel's on duty for a while - hence the Chef Boyardee for dinner.
The kids wrote lists on the driveway tonight of what they'd like to do over the summer:
- Have sleepovers
- Go to bed late
- Get ice cream
- Have a neighborhood cookout/movie presentation
- Plant flowers
- Start a blog
- Have a Luau
- Go fishing
- Hike on the Walney Pond trail
- Make Shrinky Dinks
- Have drum lessons with Dad
- Go to the batting cage
- Play mini-golf
As I was tucking the Ginger Ninja into bed tonight, he said, "If we do all those things, it's gonna be a great summer!" I love seeing summer through my children's eyes.
I encourage you to start jotting down one thing your children do each day. Don't complicate it with a system or needing a special book/journal. Just start. We think we'll remember and we don't. Do you know how great it will be to see that summer list above years from now?
I want to thank you for leaving me comments - they are a wonderful encouragement to me!!
