I’m going to be completely honest and upfront with the fact that we had a rough week. There was plenty of fun, connecting, and learning moments; There was also lots of tears and fighting. I’m not sure why, but the kids were just out of sync this week. So we had lots of breathing, conflict resolution, and sometimes just some siblings separation.
Monday, we started the day out with breakfast and books. Hailey then watched some Pokémon while Elijah watched YouTube videos with me. The kids played on their tablets a bit. The boys played dress up.
The kids did their own separate art projects. Hailey made pokeballs and Elijah painted.The kids played outside for a while. Elijah found a praying mantis. The checked him out for a little while.
Tuesday started out with some porch time. Winter played with Playdoh out there.
The day was spent mostly switching from playing Pokémon, and watching TV. Hailey and I took a wall in the evening.
Wednesday, I asked the kids I’d they wanted to check out a new park. We spent a few hours having fun on the gravity rail, and snacking too.
Hailey had Kung fu classes that evening. There was tablet time and TV too.
Thursday, Papa caught a cicada for the kids to observe.
Grandma came over for a visit. The kids love when she comes. They each worked on their own projects for a bit. The boys taped yarn to paper. Hailey wrote cards to each of us. We had fun writing to each other for a few hours.
When Papa got home he had a Pokémon card battle with Hailey. We read books, and played tablets.
Friday, we watched a movie with popcorn during the afternoon. Elijah built with Lego’s for quite a while. Hailey played her DS.
Today we had a big family breakfast. Then we went to watch remote control airplanes fly and do tricks. We finished out afternoon with a quick grocery trip, and then back home to relax.
