Apr8_YMCA

In our lives. It was a spring break week in our school district. Anna spent it in Y camp where she had a lot of fun with arts, crafts, video games and a field trip to a skating rink (indoor, of course). I didn’t see her much during the week since I had a workshop at work with inevitable dinners and late night arrivals, but we spent some fun time together on the weekend.

Afterschool. We all love breaks for their more leisurely rhythm and later wake up times for papa and daughter. Anna spent some time playing math games created by papa on her MiniLuk, reading and sewing. She also bought a simple scrapbook in a Dollar Tree and is busy filling it with drawings, poems, doodles and ideas for science experiments. I love it when she has time and energy to be creative.

Places we are going. This weekend we went hiking to our favorite State Park (it also happens to be closest to where we live). The highlight of this park are huge limestone boulders, some with open caves – a perfect natural playground for kids of all ages. Anna also really enjoyed her second try at skating even though her knees are now blue and bruised from all the falls on ice.

I love your happiness pictures!

So Anna still uses her MiniLuk? I discovered that Timberdoodle sells them, and am tempted to invest in one...

I agree caves and rocks make the perfect natural playground.
