The weather over the weekend was simply beautiful! The kids took advantage of good scooter/bike weather to get in a few laps around the neighborhood. Unfortunately, today, things turned stormy, with a fairly decent thunderstorm hitting while we were in the library. But Monday was gorgeous.
The landscaping crews have been out, getting the yards ready for spring. As part of the process, they've turned the sprinklers back on. So there we are, moms chatting on a back porch, kids running through the grass or riding bikes when BAM! The sprinklers go on! We chuckle a little and step back. But then I see da Boo...she's in the center of the grassy area, completely trapped by sprinklers everywhere she looks. She's terrified, frozen to the spot, so our shouted directions for her escape go unheeded. I did what any good mom would do: I laughed at her. And then I ran through the sprinklers and helped her get out of there. At least I wasn't wearing white...not Memorial Day yet.
Family Home Evening was pretty laid back that night.
Opening Song: Everyone say it with me now...Twinkle Little Star.
Opening Prayer: Da Boo volunteers.
Lesson: We headed out to the back and got down in the dirt. In an attempt to actually get our gardens going this year, we were weeding and pulling out grass. Well, the Man and I were doing that. The kids were harassing a poor worm, spider and a slug they found while playing in the dirt. While I was half tempted to show them what happens when you pour salt on a slug, I resisted. Da Boo probably would have burst into tears. I'll show the Boy when he's a little older.
We stayed outside until it started getting dark. I ushered the kids indoor, where we washed hands and then got a treat.
Treat: Mighty Minis. They are these cute popsicle I found recently. It's your basic popsicle flavors in different forms but they're only about two inches long. Quick enough for small kids to eat so you don't get multi-colored drips all over the floor. They are also my major bribing factor right now. Any special task is rewarded with one of these little guys. They're pretty tasty, although I think they all kinda smell funny.
