Thinking: My goal this school year is to do all these things-get outside, take a nap and get enough sleep at night, fresh air!, exercise and eat right. A walk talks care of sunshine, air and exercise!
Janey turned SEVEN, and we celebrated with a very simple birthday party which I enjoyed thoroughly because it was SIMPLE. Her favorite gift from us were Legos-I thought I was finished with Legos in my life, but she LOVES them. And I’ve said it before, I think they are worth every penny-concentration, step-by-step direction following, and patience. And sorting, and neatness, and perseverance. I (or someone around here) built the first set she got with her and then helped with the second, and now she is good to go.) . I sort of find it relaxing too, even if I am just sitting next to her “helping” (which means doing nothing but sitting next to her). It’s quiet one-on-one time that we both treasure.
(Save $26 off this dollhouse…some of the Lego Friends seriesare on sale for really good prices!!!! Doing a little early Christmas shopping myself.)
Great birthday gift to stash away:
I am reading this right now and LOVING it. The “real” not for children account of Laura’s life-the prairie was the simple life but NOT the easy life. I can’t put it down.
