We've found a new game to play together at the Starnes casa. Baseball. Or, a weak version of it.
I'm constantly trying to figure out things we can all 5 do together......that makes every kid happy and also doesn't end in Blake and me wanting to pull our hair out. It's not easy.
Swimming pool - check
Zoo - check
Worlds of Fun - check
Summer concerts - check
Union Station museums - check
Charades - check
Nature walks - check
I don't count TV or watching movies because 1.) I try to deter those activities anyway and 2.) We're not interacting. I also prefer to be outside, enjoying the weather and breathing fresh air.
So, baseball is our latest. We have a large side yard shaded with trees and soft grass, which provides a perfect field and room to run.
Carter tries to keep us in line and following the rules. Not easy.
Little punkins batting is fun.
Baby Laine.....she's the goofiest one of all.
This video is weak, but will give you a brief glimpse into how this all plays out.
Any other ideas?
