Momma said there’d be days like this

I don’t know if it was because it had rained everyday for a week and the kids had been a little more cooped up than normal, but this was a rough week. It didn’t take long for me to be at my wit’s end from the crying, complaining, etc… and that was by Tuesday morning!

So on Tuesday, when there was a break in the rain, I threw all the plans out the window. I’m not spontaneous by nature but when it’s 9:30 in the morning and you wish that you could go back to bed…well, you can get flexible rather quick like.Album 9 - 18- 2009 009The Princess shows that even a girly girl knows her way around tools.

We headed out the door and to the backyard. Everyone scattered to various parts of the yard and started doing his or her thing.

Even the sun decided to come out to play for a while. I’m always amazed at how much being outside in the fresh air with the sun shining on me lifts my spirits.

We played for 30 minutes or an hour, I really wasn’t keeping an eye on it. It was nice to just see my kids smiling and enjoying our time together.

I read some good advice this week to homeschooling families. It was that it is better to be momma to our kids than always teacher(paraphrased Adriane style). This was one day when I put aside my teacher hat and embraced my mommy hat. And in the end, our day that started out roughly, ended very nicely.
