There was playdough.
And painting (I taught Em how to paint dots with the end of her paintbrush; she loved it).
Playing with make-up. The girls love to play in their make-up while I put on mine. And, of course, playgrounds.
I want to teach my children the importance of creativity, imagination, and expression. I want to create an environment where my children are encouraged to be children. I want them to have fun, to learn, to grow, to hang upside down. That's part of my motherhood story.
Not pictured-the swimming, jumping, and sno-cone eating we did. What a weekend! We managed to squeeze in meeting the indomitable Pam and her amazing family. She's done a great write-up, as you'd expect. I'll have to think of how to do justice to that post; it was such a fun time! It also amazes me how consistently awesome bloggers are in real life. We are a cool bunch.
