As most of you may know, we are a homeschooling family. On Thursdays my older kids go to a charter school to take electives. They are taking classes like art, piano, guitar, sewing, cooking, karate, sculpting, humanitarian projects, and lego robotics. They love it, and I love it!
That means that on Thursdays, it is just Madelyn and I at home. The days that we are schooling at home I am busy teaching and helping the kids with their work. While Madelyn does receive quite a bit of attention while we do her "school" which consists of reading books and playing games, my time with her is often interrupted by the older ones. Thursdays have become our "special days" where we go and do something together, just the two of us.
Today we did a yoga hike. I strapped her on my back along with our yoga mats and hiked up the hill that overlooks our neighborhood. She talked non-stop on the way up, and we sang songs on the way down. The weather was perfect, the air was fresh, and the morning sun felt delightful on my skin. The only disappointment came to Madelyn when she actually thought we were going to do yoga IN the water tower.
I can't wait until next week with Madelyn! Leave a comment if you have any great ideas for us!
