[Not pictured:] An hour and a half of planting trees with Grandma after lunch while I got a haircut. They played hard this morning and now they're sleeping hard. It was a good day for the Knapp boys.
Okay, so this is actually from yesterday morning. But I didn't take a picture of the boys watching Wall-E and besides, the sweeping Tommy did this morning was a direct result of this play-doh experience.
Learning how to sweep. I've enjoyed reading about the Montessori method of teaching life skills, which encourages parents to teach their children, in a step-by-step manner, how to do tasks like sweeping, washing dishes, folding clothes, and wiping tables. Kids doing housework? Sounds good to me!
Using the dustpan to sweep up his dirt pile.
Simple childhood joy of riding bikes through puddles.
Not sure if it shows up in this photo, but I love the look of joy on Ben's face as he anticipates zooming through this puddle!
Lunch of peanut butter & honey sandwiches (their favorite food in the world right now), strawberries, and avocado from our own tree. Ben says, "But I don't like adado [avocado]!" He ate some anyway.
