Ethan’s prayers were answered and we had a drizzly Saturday. The drizzles weren’t so bad that they couldn’t play outside, but Ryan had other plans for his Saturday that required total concentration.
We have just a few more rows to go and finally our patio will be complete. We had to rip the entire patio out
last summer because a tree (which we removed) had uprooted the patio, making it a treacherous terrain to walk on and bumpy ground for our patio set. Ryan’s parents redid their entire landscape in their backyard and let us take their old brick. Using our brick and mixing it with the new brick, we are making a cool design and the only cost to us has been time and sand to level and fill in the cracks. I think it will be really great when it is done, we just never expected it would take this long to complete.
The kids played in their rainy day suitcase for over two hours while Ryan was outside working. I sat on the couch and happily snapped pictures of them and worked some more on my little beginner knitting project.
This instrument that I picked up from the thrift store has been a hit with both of them. Emily was strumming a little tune for us. I love that this is a nice and quiet instrument, even if they try to play it loudly.
Quiet little Saturday at home- what could be better?
