Our Monday began with our weekly park day sponsored by one of our local homeschool groups. Children of all ages invented games together, ran through the fields, climbed on the playground structures, and were immersed in childhood play.
After lunch, quiet time, and reading while my littlest one napped, my five-year-old painted in the small backyard of our condo building, and my three-year-old helped me to get a head-start on dinner preparations.
In the afternoon, my one-year-old awoke and we took a bike/scooter/sling ride to the nearby library grounds, with a stop at the children's room to stock up on library books.
Auntie and Uncle, who gratefully live just a few blocks away from us here in the city, joined us at the library park and returned home with us for a yummy family dinner and evening stories. Their presence and proximity in our lives are cherished, especially with Daddy's long consulting hours and weekly travel.
My two little ones fell asleep and my oldest and I finished a chapter book in bed, with her beginning another one herself just before dozing off.
Tell me about your Monday!
