Mama Says Om's theme this week is "outside", which is so appropriate for us, as we are outside on a daily basis. There are so many things to enjoy outside; playing in the sand, whether it be sandbox in the backyard or 45 minute to the beach, or even local park, reading a good book out in the garden, watering our little garden, checking out leaves, bugs, and other interesting outdoor finds, loving on our pets; Bone, our 10 yr old Golden retriever, Max our Bunny, Abby or Domino our kitties, going to local arboreteums, gardens, parks, nature preserves, beaches, mountains, camping at the many great southern California campgrounds, playing sports with our friends at the park on a homeschool parkday. These are just a few of the things we so enjoy doing as often as we can. I feel so very fortunate to be able to spend this much time with my kids, and enjoy every moment of their growing years with them. What beautiful memories we will share together.
