We had a very productive weekend, which while it means we didn’t rest a lot, we are going into the week with a much better handle on things. And clean underwear. Both of which seem to make for a better Monday.
I won’t post pictures of the clean house, or the laundry that was done – mostly because not all of it is folded…ugh, why can’t it just fold itself? – or the playset progress – it’s looking good, Mark! We also planted stuff, but that’s part of our 12 in 2012 so I’ll have to post about that later.
So to prove we actually did something, I’ll post pictures of Mia and her first building project! Our friend Rachel offered to take her to the kids’ Saturday morning workshop. Mia is very into experiences so this was fun for her.
And since she was gone, Finn got the car cart all to himself. Also fun for him, as you can tell.
I stalked the group from the other side of the lumber. Crazy mom with a camera.
Looks like Mia’s doing a whole lot…
Oh, right…a whole lot of watching other people. Not surprised.
The handygirls with their final project – a terrarium.
Back in the cart together, doing their favorite thing: snacking.
On the way out, Finn started going crazy, saying “vrooom, vroom, mine, mine” and would have jumped out of the cart if we hadn’t buckled him in. All because of these:
I love that look on his face. You would think they were actually moving.
Of course monkey see, monkey do.
Never underestimate the free fun that a home improvement store can provide. Of course, we spent enough on other stuff for projects at home that it can hardly be called “free” but that’s just good marketing, I guess.
