There's not a lot of the usual entertainment out there....no TV, phone, computers, video games, ipods, neighbor kids, etc. I enjoy watching them search for things to do for entertainment. They have to entertain themselves the old fashioned ways like we did as kids....
you know, by doing things like reading by kerosene lantern at the end of a long day fishing with cane poles, hitting metal hoops with sticks and playing baseball with rocks.
Oh, OK, I'm not QUITE that old!!
Anyway, Grant found the seed pods on a tree in the yard to be quite interesting the last time we were out there.
He spent quite some time plucking branches off the tree
and then emptying the seeds out of the pods.
When that got boring, he decided to take a little break
in our hammock.
He makes the funniest faces sometimes.
Do you like the dirty face?
And then right back to seed pod emptying.
This is how to spend a day doing less than nothing......perfect.
I am married to my best friend. Together we have four kids. Thirteen year old twins and a seven and a six year old. Our life might be described as busy, chaotic, messy, loud and crazy at times, but also full, loving and sometimes even fun!
