Ryan is usually home every Monday but he needed to work today due to lots of work right now. This meant the kids were on their own while I worked all day. They had a great time being creative and making messes. I made a point to spend time with them this evening do some fun things. Ethan grabbed one of the boxes that my Friday packages came in and he made a "table" in the living room. He found some felt to use as a table cloth and asked if we could make some fresh lemonade so him and Ellia could enjoy a Lemonade Party when she woke up from her nap. We juiced some lemons and an orange to add sweetness. I added agave until it was palatable for them. We poured it in some tea cups, made a snack bowl, and we enjoyed a party!
I purchased a bag of random felt for 99 cents at Goodwill a few weeks ago. I didn't have a project in mind which I try not to do.....because I could easily collect way more stuff than I could use. BUT I felt like that was a really good price for that much felt. Ethan asked if I could make them masks and caps so I did just that and they've been running around playing super heroes since. They've been jumping off high places and making all sorts of noise. It's a sign that the felt was put to good use! I'm excited for Ryan to get home:) Thankfully, they are eating Easter leftovers for dinner. I received a new magazine in the mail today and I'm excited to relax in a bath and read.
This is what I see when I look down these days. Notice you can't see my toes that I so often stub. So amazing and so huge!
