The wind is kicking it outside. The backyard toys are rolling around and screen is rattling at the door. Inside we're doing our spring break Idaho style. Not our normal Southern sun and popsicles. We're adjusting though. Lot's of coffee for me and lot's of coloring and legos for the girls. It all works out.
Slowly but surely, we have been wondering hills of our new town. Exploring and seeing what surrounds our little house. There are miles of things to see and we've only just begun.
The girls have been taking turns in the kitchen helping me out. It's the only way I can teach them how to cook. One at a time, one chef at a time. Each day they take turns learning to make something whether it's at lunch time or for supper. I found a little magnet chore chart online that is super cute! It
has been helping a lot with their chores. It reminds them what they have to do and what they've already done. Simple chores but effective. Little magnets with cute illustrations of their chore...Ellie's favorite chore besides being the chef is the laundry. She's a fan of the buttons and slamming the door.
We've been trying to make it a point every Friday night to do something as a family. Going out to our most current favorite restaurant, Red Robin. Playing games as a family. Picking a movie or going on an adventure. It's been a lot of fun. Our most recent game is Jenga and boy have we had a blast. Tons of giggles and laughter from all of us. It's been great.
