Every night at bedtime, I give my boys a rundown of the next day’s activities. Last night when I told them we would be going to the YMCA again, I added that we would be going quite a bit more now that school is out. My oldest got the biggest smile and said, “Yah, we don’t go to school anymore! We get to stay home with Mommy!” My heart just overflowed with joy at these words.
My boy is excited to be home with me! Yes!!! I’m thrilled! As much as we love our kids, it is also nice to hear them express their love in return (unprompted)! It encourages me and yet saddens me that the days are going so quickly! It also makes me question how we are going to spend our days together so that they are special to us all.
I am in awe of all the wonderful ideas shared here on this link up! I encourage you to find your favorites and get busy cherishing each moment with your kids! This may be a Wednesday link up, but every day is a great day to play! Please share with me in the comments… How are you spending your days with your children?

I am in love with this pizza pinwheel idea! I love to entertain and am always looking for a creative dish that everyone will enjoy… and who doesn’t love pizza?! Plus, the recipe is simple and can be easily customized to accommodate all tastes! I can foresee this coming up soon on our menu!
These map games are brilliant! My boys are so good at picking out places they know and how much fun to map them along the way! Plus, you’ll regain some sanity in the car by not hearing, “Are we there yet?”
This treasure box for Daddy is an adorable way to show Daddy just what an awesome guy he is! A functional and sentimental gift is my favorite kind to give… and it’s fun for the kids to make too!
Let’s get the party started!
