Our local zoo offers free admission on the first Tuesday of the month after 2pm. I’ve wanted to take the kids for a while, and so, we’re going today! I’m pretty excited, because this will be the first time to the zoo for my little ones I think they’ll really like it! If it goes well we’re going to work on getting a membership so we can go more regularly.
As I get ready for this I am so thankful that we homeschool and I’m able to take advantage of things like this. There are so many opportunities available to homeschoolers in our area, and I’m very very thankful to live in such a homeschool friendly area.
I’m also extremely grateful for the ability to spend this time with my children. The other day we were at a friend’s house and my youngest was squatting down to pick flowers for me and I had a brief flash back of my 11 year old doing the same thing in a picture I have of him. I was reminded of how quickly they grow up. I was moved to tears as I watched my baby pick flowers, because I know he won’t be little for long. I’m so glad I get to spend this time with them. Do I miss out on “me” stuff? YEP. Would I trade it for anything???? NOPE! These days will only be here for a short time. There will be plenty of “me” time when they’re gone.
