This weekend, my niece spent the night with us on Friday, and on Saturday, I took the girls to a park near Flannery's school. They played for hours there--swinging, climbing trees, kicking a ball around, finding bugs. Then we came back to the house and did some projects on the back deck to get ready for Flannery's birthday. It was so nice to spend big chunks of time outside--it really calmed my frayed nerves.
On another note, Flannery's birthday present has arrived--her very own swing-set! It's in a box in our back yard as we speak. Fingers crossed we can figure out how to put it together! I'll post pics once it's up!
How did you experience nature this weekend?
