A few things.

A few things...

-We're going over plants and seeds! My oldest absolutely loves helping in the garden. Right now she's observing a bean grow in a mason jar. Each day we take down a few notes and discuss the transformation of the bean.

- I planned an event at the park! It was wonderful.- Paint and bubbles in the park. A few moms showed up with their little ones and we all enjoyed the nice weather and chat.

-I've been making shakers for my littlest one. She's moving and grooving. She's a very active baby and loves to shake things. Using an old cinnamon candy container, food coloring and noodles, I was able to create a simple and fun shaker. 

-My littlest one is now 8 months. I'm continuing to nurse her and she's exploring with pureed foods. Her favorite is squash with brown rice. 

-Our oldest daughter loves reading to us now. She's so wonderful and we enjoy this time that she reads to us. Children truly are amazing!

- I'm gardening more now that the rain has come to an end. Honestly, I would love more rainy days. 

-My Fitbit ChargeHR finally arrived. I had been waiting since December for the plum color one to come out. I've been tracking my sleep, steps, workouts and much more. For those of you who aren't familiar with it, it's a heart rate+activity wristband. It continuously takes your heart rate. Just click the ChargeHR link to learn more. :)

-I'll be painting a room or two in our home this weekend. - I need change! 

I hope you all have enjoyed your week! Have a beautiful and very happy weekend.

Welcome new readers! I'm so happy to have you here.

Rainy day, please stay..{Currently}

 I'm embracing these rainy days. Ah, the smell of rain.- So fresh. Perfect weather for a snuggle, cup of coffee and of course for the little ones to splash in rainy puddles. We've been having a few thunderstorms late at night. Today it has mostly been a light sprinkle. - I'm enjoying this very much.


-Baking an apple coffee cake in the slowcooker.
-Piles of books lay on our living room floor. 
-My oldest is singing. She enjoys this very much. And of course her little sister can't stop smiling.
-A warm cup of coffee awaits me in the kitchen.
-Rain is coming down. It really is relaxing.
-I've started a load of laundry. Something about doing laundry on a rainy day...
-Math lessons are set aside for our oldest. -We'll get to them later this evening.
For now..
We will enjoy our time together on this rainy day.
