well hello there Summer! We love you already.
A few little changes to how we are using screens has made a HUGE difference around here. Now the day begins with breakfast and a book for the kids and breakfast and my notebook for me.
(And sometimes we have leftover brownies for breakfast.)
The kids were on screens so much that they never played with toys. It's been fun (and a bit surprising) to see what they choose to do instead and what things they rediscover.
This is mythology school. Eli is the teacher while Clara carefully takes notes. :)
We even made it through a whole dinner at a restaurant without screens AND our pickiest eater tried two new foods. The moment needed to be documented.
The weather has been just perfect. Eli got a new toy. It is so much fun that I kinda want one for myself.
We couldn't have had a better start to summer! This week hopefully we'll settle into a routine and I can put a little more time into my creative projects. [fingers crossed!]
