I'm a big believer in kids entertaining themselves. Especially outside. So I thought it was pretty great when I spotted them trying to climb the shortest pine tree for the first time. I liked climbing our trees when I was little. Broke one pretty good too... I wish my kids would have figured it out earlier! Of course they wouldn't go any higher than that but I suppose that seemed pretty high to them.
"Mom take my picture too!"
Ezra hauled this little sled to the high corner of the yard and prepared to propel himself down the hill. He doesn't seem to understand friction and sledding... A few days later Evie was dragging Samuel around the yard by one leg. They've got to entertain themselves somehow!
