Yesterday the weather was rather gloomy, but today was gorgeous. Mark has unfortunately caught my cold from last week and hasn’t been feeling well. I though I’d give him a bit of a break, so I took the older boys shopping with me this afternoon. Ben was due to take a nap, and I thought Mark would do the same. He didn’t – would you believe he did laundry and prepped the dining room walls for painting?
The boys said they enjoyed the shopping expedition, except they complained I spent too long in the craft store.
When we came home, it was still quite warm (as long as the wind didn’t blow), so we had them go outside for a bit. Our yard is tiny, but it’s still better to have them play outside than to have them cooped up in the house all weekend. We brought Ben’s swing outside and he had a good time watching the older boys play. Isaac and Jonny enjoyed themselves and came inside tired and sweaty for dinner.
If this nice weather keeps up, maybe we can even break out the grill next weekend!
