Laying low

Ah, the lazy days of summer are upon us. We have been laying pretty low, falling into a pretty set pattern of iced coffee from Tougo’s and neighborhood parks followed by nap times and quiet evenings at home. The regularity has been good. It keeps us getting out of the house, keeps us enjoying our time together, keeps presenting the opportunities to encounter friends and spend time with those in our community. Additionally, it keeps me motivated to stay moving as I am beginning to be more slowed down by the remaining bit of this pregnancy. Not to say it is unbearable, not yet at least, which is why I am thankful for our little routine. At the same time, I have purposefully been taking it at a slower pace, which has spurred me to find more creative ways to entertain and enrich the kids without taking on too much. Home playtime has become more essential and I have been brainstorming ways to start doing more easy crafts and activities around here. Thank goodness for the resources of the internet and other blogs. So far we have been having a grand old time with the Tutu’s as well as playdough, coloring and even some painting. If anyone has any more to share, please do pass them along my way. Mostly, I am amazed how well these kids entertain themselves, how well they enjoy playing together so independently and how creative they can be just on their own. I love to play with them, involved in their little imaginations and conversations. It is even just plain fun to watch them, even when all I feel like doing is laying on the couch, feet up feeling weary and heavy.
