The weather is nothing shy of perfect right now. It’s warm enough outside that the kids want to go outside and play as soon as they get home from school. We had a lot of visitors this afternoon, which is heaven for my kids. They would have it this way every day if it were their choice.
Although there is no one Hunter’s age he plays with them seamlessly. Until he gets out of hand and he becomes too much for the other kids to handle (hence, he’s not in the pictures below, but instead in timeout for kicking and attempting to bite). After I got him squared away in timeout, I started cleaning the kitchen. Although I couldn’t see the trampoline from the kitchen, I could hear them outside singing and being slightly crazy/silly, so I went out to find them all jumping on the trampoline while singing Christmas songs. Their little voices, with not-so perfect pitch, singing “Santa Clause is coming to town” made me smile. They sang it over and over again, which leads me to believe it’s one of the few songs they all know the words too!
I still have to pinch myself to think that Santa is coming to town, and we’re still wearing flip flops. I love where we live!
