Siesta Time

We have been spending time outside most of the time, even our siesta time is being spent outside.  The cherry tree that we planted in our front yard provides  shade so we decided to hang out there  last Friday.  We just laid out a blanket, bring some snack, and  we had fun.
The kids  found this piece of bone, I think a dog brought it in our yard.  They thought that somebody  was buried there lol.  They were also fascinated with the lady bug who kept us entertained the whole time because it keep  flying away then land on the bone.  
We bought this cherry tree  online some six years ago and  we thought that it won't grow because it was just a small stick when it was delivered.  It is now tall and big although it hasn't bloom yet.
This snack mix  and  juice in a pouch were the goodies that filled our tummies..
Happiness lies on how you spend quality time  with your kids,  not the amount of material things they get.
"It is very important to generate a good attitude, a good heart, as much as possible. From this, happiness in both the short term and the long term for both yourself and others will come."

  18. one of the homeschooling method's believe that children should spend more time outdoors to discover the world around them and learn from it that way. i can see that is true with your kids as they learn from a simple trip to your backyard! :D
