Okay, today I pushed myself to rise from bed early.
So early in fact that I had time to lift weights for 25 minutes, followed by sweating, glowing, gyrating, shimmying to music during a 43-minute cardio session of squats, bachata, salsa, soca moves, and push-ups. This is one of my favorite songs (click here if you dare to be overcome by THE DANCING!).
Took the little ones to the park for a lovely and invigorating nature walk.
The flowers blooming on trees and bushes are GORGEOUS!
We collected sticks. There are so many delightful activities to do with sticks:
- Build an unlit campfire.
- Create geometric shapes such as squares, rectangles, rhombuses, trapezoids, and so on.
- Line the sticks up by length.
- Count the sticks by twos, threes, fours, and more.
- Create Land Art. More information can be found here.
We walked, climbed, jumped, skipped. I turned on our mega bubble machine (battery operated? oh yes, of course, dear) and chased those bubbles until we were overcome with laughter and fatigue.
Today was a good day. I am thankful and hope that tomorrow is, too.
Oh, and today’s word count?
