This week has been fabulous. Jason is still home from work, so it's kind of been our "vacation from our vacation" of last week. We've watched a lot of tv, played board games, driven our R/C cars, shot off fireworks, stayed up way too late, gone to the lake....you name it. Stuff we don't usually have time to do.
When I saw the color of the week over at Project 64: Outside of the Box is Sea Green, I was pumped. I love blues and greens! I've been searching all over for the perfect thing...and one of Wyatt's marbles caught my eye while we were building a marble run today. We ran outside, grabbed some sea green sidewalk chalk, created a circle, and played a good ol' fashioned game of marbles. It's about time we use these things for something other than a land mine to step on at 3am.
I'm also going to use this for my Momma In Focus this week over at One Day at a Time. The theme this week is Patriotic...and this may be a stretch, but marbles is an American pastime, right? At the very least, we're celebrating our freedom to have way too much fun doing next to nothing...and we're proud of it! Yay, America!
