Simple Summers.

I used to over-complicate the summers and try to think of elaborate places to go.

During this “low buy” July, I’ve been trying to get more creative with our activities.wp-1657658564606I used to take the kids to this petting farm that’s 45 minutes away.wp-1657658564737But recently I found a farm that’s under 20 minutes away where you can not only pet the animals, but feed them as well. wp-1657658565164They also have a farm stand with trinkets, snacks plus a mini hiking trail.wp-1658004533188I wouldn’t have thought to look closer if it wasn’t for this challenge. Well truthfully, being gas conscious also helps to think outside the box

I’ve also gone back to doing a “home day.”

Tuesdays- Thursdays I work, plus we we have Karate twice a week [then they go to their dad’s Friday night].wp-1657658564233I decided to make Monday our home [plus no spending] day. We’ll play in the yard, use the sprinklers/pool, do arts & crafts and go for a mini hike in the morning.wp-1657658467759The kiddos loved the idea of “Monday hike day.”

Well, okay;

I MIGHT have told them each week we’d do a different treat during our snack break. This particular week we did cookies but we do have plans for lollipops, smarties, fruit snacks and such.wp-1657658467882#momlife 😉

I absolutely love that this trail is a short walk away from my house; literally FOUR whole minutes away.20220606_182339Other activities we’ll be doing are library story times, playing at the park, going to the beach, flying kites and such.wp-1656674613118When I asked them what they wanted to do it just seemed they just wanted to do something together and spend time with me somewhere.

Truly, that is what children want.

To spend TIME with you and feel love.wp-1657658467640It’s that simple.

Just remember to take it, one day at a time.
