Then we came home just in time for lunch and Lydia’s camp.
I sneaked down to the basement and watched Mary crafting all alone while Abe put Lydia to bed. It was so cute to see her “painting” craft sticks with watercolor and carefully lining up her finished products. Then I took a video of her playing in the play room because her play delights me so.
I spent over an hour cleaning the basement today, but it was a joy because I discovered all sorts of evidence of creative child play. I don’t even mind if the space gets messed up right after I’m done because I figure the purpose of cleaning is just to rejuvenate the space so it stays attractive to the kids. Also, I get a lot of satisfaction thinking about how the space and toys are so much more utilized now.
