The kids were outside, playing for the best part of the day yesterday - it really was a lovely sunny, not overly hot, day. They came and went for food, watched a movie, and then ran out again. Late in the afternoon they came to me: "MUM! come and look at what we did!"
I have to say, they had me in fits of laughter:
Two bikes, connected with lead ropes pilfered from the shed, and tied to the little old red wagon. Now, of course I could comment on the reasoning and thought process behind this activity, and how well they worked together to make it all come together, and how the girls must work as a team to pull the wagon and share the load...but mostly it just cracks me up. Especially with the boy yelling "yah yah" and waving his stick, as they peddle off around the paddock and down the back road (a whole other ,concerning topic is his role!)
I was reading a friends blog and commented on her dream for more/better things, and added my own dream of a slight change in lifestyle and circumstances...but this is a great reminder to be happy with what you've got, where you are right now.
I think the kids had a great day yesterday, and so did I.
