hello bike riding weather We have a love/hate relationship with kids on bikes. They love riding, until they don't; and we enjoy helping them learn, until they reach the don't stage, then we get stressed. But it's always a fun afternoon of bicker-free time and they get some great core strength happening, too!
hello clothes dryer Our clothes dryer died the same week Steve finished with his previous employer. And while I've learned to enjoy the process of hanging the washing out each morning, not having a dryer on rainy weekends has been an absolute pain in the butt. So it was the first thing on our shopping list once we'd caught up with all the bills and shopping.
hello playdough A couple of weeks ago, I whipped up some playdough to entertain Toni's little miss and Sophie while Toni went for her GTT. It smelled like gingerbread, and the girls loved it, and when I brought it home, all the big kids loved it, too. So we're exploring the world of smelly playdough. Last week, I made glittery peppermint, and this week I'm thinking purple lavender.
hello planning I'm 3 weeks into #FinishBigStartStrong and I've completed every module. If you've been around here for any length of time, you know how rare that is. But now that I've got my head around how to set up an electronic editorial calendar, it's time to get into the nitty gritty of actually planning a year's worth of blog posts. I'm about halfway through the brainstorming process (why do bursts of inspiration happen at 4pm on Sundays?) and pretty excited about it.
hello Christmas There's only 5 Fridays left to Christmas. That's 34 days, people.
hello Monday, a new start every week.
