“The best way out is always through.”
—Robert Frost (1874-1963), American poet
Three weeks of sheltering at home down. No telling how many more to come.
But, we’re still doing it. Staying home together. As a family.
Speaking of family, Jaden put together a game of Family Feud for us. At first, it was a bit of trial and error to learn how to play at home.
But then, it was a blast to play. We split up into teams of three, Jaden was the host, and Joeli helped watch Riley.
All in all, we’re going to be playing this again. (You can easily find the questions and answers online).
We’ve spent a LOT of time outside. Fortunately, the Texas Spring weather has been ideal for hanging out in the backyard.
Of course, Colby never needs a reason to bring out his grill, but he does often. Hamburgers and hot dogs are easiest for feeding all of us.
The kids love s’mores and jump on any chance to make them.
But, again, we’re all for it. We always make sure we have the s’mores ingredients on hand, just in case.
The Springfree Trampoline is still a family favorite. Whether jumping, drawing with chalk, or simply sitting and talking; we’re on it quite often.
Guess what?! We have actually been putting the bread maker to work!
Jaci made this bread during her French class two years ago and wanted to try it in the bread maker.
Although the shape was a little different, it was just as delicious!
While we spend much of our days outdoors, we do move inside on occasion.
This week we had friends reach out to ask if we wanted a couch they no longer had use for.
It seats five, has USB outlets, recliners all the way across, and features two massage chairs at either end.
Of course we said, “YES!”
The kids love it already! We had a movie night with pizza delivery while watching Disney Pixar’s Onward.
This little one, growing ever so fast, is a constant source of entertainment. She’s really getting used to her aunts (and uncle) and loving all the attention.
Jaden decided she was bored, so she took Riley into my closet and did a fashion show with my clothes.
Whatever it takes at this point to keep everyone happy and sane.
