Life is really really sweet right now and I am crazy thankful for that!
The boys have started school and I have a feeling it's going to be a great year! I fine tuned our curriculum from last year and so far we are humming along. I'll do a big curriculum share down the road. Teaching active boys has kept me on my toes!
I was in need of some "mommy time" when Ainsley from the Wild and Free conference contacted me about a project. I had the opportunity to create 125 swag bags for the ladies attending. After unpacking boxes and being in move mode it was the perfect release and getting a chance to be a part of something bigger was awesome!
We also have been taking advantage of our final days of summer. Camping with the boys is by far my favorite family activity. Unplugged, in nature, campfires and s'mores....seriously my favorite place to be. We have a handful of trips planned before winter hits and are dreaming up a big Summer 15' trip to Acadia National Park!
One thing I had to share with y'all are the quiet time books we brought with us camping this past weekend. We usually spend all morning through lunchtime hiking and geocaching with the boys. Once we are back at camp it's quiet time. I paint or read, Mr. Doozie snoozes in a hammock and the boys can explore around the camp, paint with me or read books. These doodle books were a HUGE hit last weekend!
Usborne books has by far the best activity books I've seen. Just type "color" or "doodle" in their search bar and be prepared to be amazed! Here's the link: Usborne Books & More
I'll be sharing more books with y'all down the road. Especially some amazing ones for school!
Feels good to finally catch up here! Our goal for the house being finished is Thanksgiving so, yep I'm waiting to post pictures till then :) Hope your Monday is happy!
