Boys Boys Boys

The Spirit is there in every boy; it has to be discovered and brought to life.
~Robert Baden-Powell
I was starting to wonder for a while why we spent so much money on our playset because the kids would just not use it.  All it took was a little sunshine and now they are out there EVERY day playing on the swings, or playing in the fort.  I love that the kids have a great back yard to play in and can go out everyday.  There is something great about being able to look out the window and see all of them playing together OUTSIDE! We have had a rule this summer.  As long as it is nice they have to go and play outside for bit.  I haven't had to remind them because they want to.  They are usually out there ALL day on the swingset or in the pool or the slip n slide.  Summer has been nice with very little tv or electronics.  I just think that not many kids get a chance to play outside because of media devices.  I am determined to make sure my kids find their imagination OUTSIDE and they definately have this summer.



WAY CUTE pix, Alisha! The weather has been so great! We haven't been home much for the boys to be glued in front of the "boob tube" as I call it, but yeah, when we are home, I make sure to kick them out often to get their Vitamin D!! You are lucky to have such a great yard. Your kids are the best, I just LOVE them! <3


I wish I could kick my kids outside all day... but something about "heat advisory" warnings every day and 115+ degree weather doesn't bode well for anybody. We do go swimming at friend's/relative's houses as often as possible... and to the mall for the indoor playgrounds :) Glad your boys get to be boys! We've got our 3rd boy on the way in October!
