Well this summer I have tried to do some kind of planned activity each day with the kids. I have found that I have to be purposeful and plan this out or I can go all day and not sit down and spend one-on-one time interacting with my little cuties. Most days they are not elaborate activities--it can be as easy as just going outside and playing catch or blowing bubbles WITH them and without my phone or any other distractions. I have missed a couple of days but I can definitely say that the days that I have done it--our days have gone much smoother!
Last year I found this make-your-own-sidewalk-chalk kit on clearance so I picked it up for later. A couple of weeks ago we busted it out.
DIY sidewalk chalk recipe.
DIY watercolor paints from Pinterest and puting them in there. Eventually. Ha!
Oh and if you are hopping over from Jenna's--here is my daily post info.
Day 1--My name is Sara. I am married to Matt and in August we will have been married 8 years. Woot! Woot! We have two kids that are less than a year apart. Lilly is our fun and silly girly girl and she is 3. Reid is our spunky and sweet all boy little two year old. We also have a pug named Tank. I stay at home with the kids and feel so blessed to be able to do that.
Day 2--I started blogging so that the grandparents could see regular pictures of the kids and know what we are up too. I mostly just blog what we do on a daily basis. This blog has kind of become our online scrapbook. Most Tuesdays I do a "Testimony Tuesday" post where I just share something that the Lord has been teaching me lately. I also blog crafts and recipes very sporadically.
Day 3--I am on twitter @mrssarascott and I am on Pinterest too here. Pinterest is probably the website I check most often. I love finding stuff to do with Matt, the kids, and new recipes to try too. I am on Instagram--but honestly until a couple of weeks ago I didn't know people could follow me or comment on posts. I have no idea how to follow anyone on Instagram either. I am going to get on that soon! ( ;
