One of my favorite features about our house is the huge front porch. It reminds me of an old southern home, minus the heat. We're just lacking some rocking chairs and sweet tea.
Mornings are lovely outside, regardless of the temperature, as we're always shaded. If I can keep the little ones contained, it makes for a nice couple of hours in the fresh air....filling our time between Blake and Carter's departure each day and our early lunch followed by another favorite of mine, naptime.
I lost sight of reality recently....trying to keep things interesting and new.....and introduced Playdough to our routine. Very messy, but very fun.
Neither of the kids really understood what to do, but our concrete got a new shade of color and lunch was less of a hassle that day, considering how much each of them consumed.
