Lately I have really been enjoying sitting on my deck in the early morning, especially on the weekends. Our yard has a lot of trees and is very peaceful. I have spent several mornings reading and writing at our new patio set from Sam’s Club. It’s been glorious.
We have had a couple really nice weekend mornings where it hasn’t been too hot, so the kids have also enjoyed morning weather on the deck, with me sitting nearby.
Previously, we didn’t have a place to sit, so they would play outside with me in the kitchen with the patio door open to listen in on them. Or I would pull a chair from our dining room table onto the deck – not exactly convenient!
A couple weeks ago, we decided to get an early start and go out on the deck in our pjs.
I pulled a chair from our set near an outlet so I could plug my laptop in and still engage with the kids while they played. It was perfect. I was able to work on photos for Project Life and they had a blast running around, hula-hooping, playing in the sandbox and singing.
While out there, I filmed this little video. It’s real life. Silly play, mixed with a little bit of Adeline pushing her brother over singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star instead of the ABCs. Classic.
Do you ever go outside in the morning?
