New Family Tradition
Tonight was the first time of a new family tradition: date night. Arianna had a date with Daddy and Ryan had a date with Mommy. Arianna and Daddy went to get ice cream and then to Borders to look at books (Ari's choice). Ryan and Mommy went to a different ice cream place and then to Target to pick out a toy. He picked out a gun for himself and we got Ari a princess doodle doll set. Arianna really enjoyed herself. She spent all day very excited about her date with Daddy. While we were out, Ryan kept asking where Ari was. He doesn't know what to do with himself without his sister. I love that they love each other so much! Ari and I are looking forward to our date in 2 weeks. We are planning to go to Paint Your Pots.
“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.” - Fred Rogers

"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor souls who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat." --Theodore Roosevelt
Who am I? That is a difficult question to answer! I am a wife to a loving man! I am a Mom of 2 wonderful children of which I homeschool. I love to scrapbook and take pictures mainly of the kids. I have five dachshund that are as close to kids as they get.
