Finally! A week spent outdoors, without coats, shoes, mittens or hats. And in water!
Jude: "Milk!" (or "Muk" as he calls it)
Me: Hands him the milk in a sippy cup.
Jude: "Nooooooo!!" while rolling on the floor, throwing a full and heavy sippy cup at me.
Anyway, back to the story. Open windows motivate me to clean, wash the bedding, purge old toys and household items, and begin the seasonal clothing changeover. And of course bathe the kids more regularly before bed, thanks to Mother Nature's playthings.
These days spent outdoors have exhausted us in a different way, more physically than emotionally as does in winter. Hopefully we've turned a corner here with our family dynamic.
On a non-related note, I'm 4 weeks into the 6 week figure drawing class I signed up for.
How's life in your part of the world? Any activities you're spending your free time doing?
