When We Finish School Early...

we venture outside:)

On Monday, after being in the house most of Saturday and Sunday (due to rain!), we needed the outdoor retreat! So we went looking for spring...

The kids found a pecan to play "soccer'' with in the puddle;)

Lydia was obviously the child that enjoyed the water the MOST!

It's still only Spring;) Nate was freezing when he came out of the water... he was a walking goose bump! The poor little thing curled up in the wagon to try to stay warm :(

Since we were walking distance from home and in a semi-secluded spot, I did some quick thinking! I took off my tank top under my t-shirt and put it on Nate! He warmed up pretty quickly:)

When the older kids saw how Nate was immediately warmer decided that I need to wear 4 tank tops next time;) LOL!!

We did much more splash than hunting... but we did it all together (except for Momma not getting into the puddle... someone has to clean everyone up) ! Definitely a memory making event and it was very nice get out to enjoy the beautiful morning.

I love the flexibility of home schooling!

Next time you'll have to put a stack of towels in a trash bag in the wagon and get wet, too. The kids will love it and think Mommy has gone crazy.

Dogwood & wisteria blossums - beautiful!
Your kids will treasure the memory of playing in puddles.

Hello,
I came across your website and found it very enjoyable. I just had a couple of questions so if you could e-mail me back that would be great!

Your spring pictures - both of the children and the flowers - are wonderful. :-)

Your blooms are beautiful, but your puddle shots are fabulous! The bike in the ditch is crackin me up! These would be perfect for our theme this week- Rain/Water! Thanks so much for linking to our Leap into Spring Challenge!
