To Do…

It’s a busy week for us.  Jack turned 9 yesterday.  Victoria turned 14 today.  Victoria has surgery tomorrow (she has a mass on her jaw that doctors need to investigate and remove).  Alex turns 5 the next day (yes, 3 of our 5 kids have birthdays the same week!).  The next day, we leave for Minneapolis and the next day we are taking part in a historic presentation (Daryl will be teaching folks how to use the telegraph!).  The next day, we’re bringing a wonderful friend of Victoria’s back home to stay with us for a week.

I’m trying not to think too much about all the things I have to do!

But in the meantime, I’m making up a to-do list of the fun stuff to be sure to accomplish in the next week or two besides the birthday fun and family adventures.

I want to try to…

  • Go hiking
  • Go bike riding
  • Have some messy fun
  • Try out our new water wall outside
  • Set up a bathtub water wall inside
  • Make lots of healthy treats
  • Do more art
  • Read oodles of books to the little kids and the big ones
  • Spend more time in nature
  • Lie in the sun
  • Have a picnic for lunch (even in the back yard)
  • Play with the dog
  • Play in the dirt (I mean garden)

We’ll see how much we get to.  But I’ll be happy if we just find some time to have a little extra fun. 

What’s on your to-do list for fun next week?
