Sunday’s are are only slow days. I really do enjoy them, we hang out outside while the boys ride their bikes, scooters, shoot hoops, play star wars and beat each other up. Sometimes, it takes a lot of patience for me to just hang out with them. There’s so much I could be “doing” but I always end up enjoying my time with them much more.
Yesterday, we took a walk around the block. We don’t have big fields to play in, but we have a beautiful neighborhood with lots of people we treasure. The walk is always a race for the boys and they tend to miss all of the trees, grass and pretty things along the way. I just can’t understand that. Ruby and I like to walk nice and slow take it all in.
After our walk we walk we hung out with the neighbor kids and made sling shots from some really cool sticks that Grandpa picked up with the boys on Saturday. He always finds the best sticks. The boys love spending time with him. “Mom, Grandpa always LET’S up take the sticks from the park home, not like you!”
Our first attempt was good, but Tommy decided he wanted a pocket sling shot. So I busted out the saw (again note the very fancy saw horse) and let him have at it. He really enjoys carving, cutting and making things out of sticks. I’ve had to let go of the fear that he will hurt himself. He’s eventually gonna
cut off his finger hurt himself but, I’ve gotta be OK with letting him try. He’s so eager and I don’t want to squelch that in him.
