Simple Pleasures (a new series)

28 Apr

Just an ordinary Day

Outside with my boys

Well I have really taken to heart the concept of finding joy in the simple things in life. I am enjoying my view through the eyes of my toddlers and want to bring you a series I want to call simply…”Simple Pleasures”, how appropriate. So take note and start enjoying your simple moments in life they will live in your child’s memory forever.

 This week we finally bounced back to our “ordinary” yet so fulfilling life. We did our usual trip to our local library where we checked out almost every “Fancy Nancy” book we could find (great for the beginner reader). Then we hit our usual spot to start our picnic (snacks really) that always includes an apple for Rockford, crackers for Rocco and peanuts for mama. After eating our snacks Rockford is always the first to dash off and start his discovery. He started with the chasing of ducks (yes, mallards to be exact) and then went on to discover spider webs on trees, watching his shadow on the ground and spinning himself silly on a skinny tree. I laughed, enjoyed and delighted myself in this moment for I know they will soon leave us, but wont be forgotten.

    Hi! I tried to leave a comment a moment ago and my keyboard messed up. If you get two of these, please choose which to delete.

    My daughter Kayla loved the Fancy Nancy books, too. I am sure your boys will continue to enjoy them!

    I enjoy your blog, and I appreciate your visits, and comments to my blog. Thanks!

      Hi Nancy, thanks for stopping by. I too love reading your posts. I love your sense of humor and your writing style. My older son really likes the Fancy Nancy because of her adventures and learning of “big” words. I like to make her voice and Ms. Glass’ too. 🙂 I hope you continue to enjoy my blog as much as I enjoy yours. Blessings to you and your family.

    Agreed that it doesn’t take much to keep my boys happy. In fact, the other day they both played for more than an hour with an old newspaper. I’m praying I will enjoy the ‘shadows’ and newspapers in my life like my boys do.

      “Agreed that it doesn’t take much to keep my boys happy.” It’s God’s way of teaching us through our children right? I am learning contentment and joy every day 🙂
