Co-op was canceled this week. I get an extra week to make my lessons even better. So instead of highlighting a fellow writer today, I decided to share a few pictures and tell about some of what we’ve been doing.
This past month, I’ve been making sure my children have ample opportunity to just be children. One of their favorite places to play is over at the nearby ranch where our oldest son works as an apprentice.
The day after Hannah’s birthday we all went over to visit the animals. Of course they had high hopes of getting to ride a horse too.
But while they waited to ride a horse their imaginations took over.
I love to see my children growing and learning.
They need these opportunities to be free to learn on their own and in their own way within the eyesight of a loving parent that won’t let them get hurt.
Ah, yes! I can learn something from my children.
Maybe I could use to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Let my hair down. Enjoy freedom under the steady watch of my loving Heavenly Father who is always with me. He’s always within reach. Any time I fall down God’s right there to lift me up and dust me off.
What do you plan to do to enjoy life today? I’d love to hear your ideas.
I may just forget chores this afternoon and go play outside barefoot with my kids. The dishes will still be here when I get back.
