Race day, filled with a few relay races, bike races, Hot Wheels tracks, and a homemade car craft!
Today we started the day off building some tracks in the basement, which consisted of pulling out a bin of car stuff and dumping it on the floor! Bonus, it was actually put away organized after, that checks something off of my imaginary list!
Next was the outdoor fresh air relay race, which did not have to be elaborate at all but was filled with laughter and running! I actually though of this because on one of my favourite memories with my Dad's brothers. When I was around 12 we were fishing with my Dad's side of the family. I am not sure how it came about but we decided to do a relay race kids vs. adults. Now we thought (as kids) those "old guys" with beer bellies have no chance! We laughed the whole time, it was such a blast, and it turns out those "old guys" could actually run really fast!
This was the most successful part of the day, it wasn't hard or elaborate, and I will definitely be including it more into our playtime!! All we did was get get a ball into the box with our nets.
We made a car craft next, which didn't turn out well, but they were into building it, so it doesn't really matter. Baby Theo was pretty fussy today, so I couldn't stay on any task for too long. We ended the day with a 3D movie! Side note: Carly wears a tank top and shorts as his lounging gear, so tonight Gus insisted on putting on shorts and a "hang top" as well, precious. Tomorrow is "Hockey Day" with Dad, which will be filled with some skating, indoor/outdoor hockey and old hockey movies, and "rink burgers", woo hoo! Virtual hugs and kisses to all and keep your family close!
In light of recent events I have decided to post a few of our day-to-day activities to inspire a few others who are not used to having the little ones at home. I was initially freaking out, until I realized today that I have been actually doing pretty much this for 5 years plus. I am just upping the fun (so we can think about anything else in this terrible time for the world) and get off of our devices (which is adding to the anxiety). The boys are having such a blast, I'm loving reading everyones ideas, and am genuinely looking forward to experience more with my kids! MY AIM is for them not to remember that we got hit by a virus, but to remember it as: that time we were home with our MOM with no school and it was the BEST STAYCATION EVER! LOVE to everyone!
