After an extremely busy weekend it has been wonderful to have ordinary days. To many my days and life may seem boring, but the simple hum of my days make my heart sing.
Tuesday was a day full of laundry.
Without a packed schedule there was time to play.
I feel that it is so important for children to have time to play. Time to explore, use their imaginations and just be. I don't feel children need to be constantly entertained or in planned activities.
I made my first purchase on Craigs list a week or so ago.
This table and chairs was purchased for $20. I bought it to add two chairs to my existing table.
Here are the chairs around my existing table.
I wasn't loving this. The chairs didn't slide under the table enough and although it looks okay in the picture once the baby pulled up on a chair or Megan tried to push one up to the table it looks crowded and messy. Last night I convinced Chuck to bring in the other table to try out.
I am liking this much better. The quality of the table isn't as good as my other one, but this one will meet our needs. We usually eat dinner while the boys I watch are still here and this makes it a much better experience for everyone.
One of the things I like most about ordinary days is gathering around the dinner table.
Enjoying some fresh green beans from my garden and even better company.
I hope you are taking time to enjoy the simple moments!
