Toddlers and Pumpkins

 It is a known fact that in order to home school with little ones and stay focused two things must happen.

 1. You must find even the smallest activity to grab their attention and keep them busy for a wee bit. I have not pulled these felt pieces out in MONTHS! That means he loves them and they seem "new" and we can get some more school done with the big kids.

 2. You must learn to relax, be flexible and allow the house to get messy. It only takes a few minutes to tidy up later and those little kids there who pulled out the mess? They are OLD ENOUGH to pick it all up!

Moving on.....

It was pumpkin carving day here today. It was exciting, it was fun, it was squishy, it was everything a child imagines it would be. That was how my kids would describe it.

Me? Well, let's just say I have fact #2 down well today and took the time to reflect on the fun tradition and relax. :-)
It was a lot of pumpkin to carve and clean.

Oh my we did make a discovery of gigantic proportions this morning, however........

Occasionally, a child here DOES wear shoes!!!! This might be a first!!!

Happy Relaxin' Wednesday!
