Since I have gone to work I come home every day to the kids doing a new outdoor project! They really seem to like spending time with Uncle Bobby and I can relax knowing they aren't just being sent off to play. I have shown a couple of their outdoor activities - don't they look like they are having a blast? If I were home they would be doing these very things. I was so worried they would miss out when I decided to return to work. I do though have the advantage of them being home with daddy or home with Uncle Bobby. I don't have to drag them around to sitters, even worse sitters they don't know. I couldn't do that. Don't get me wrong I know millions of woman must have sitters out of complete necessity and I feel for them. I give kudos to the family members who step up to make that transition easier. My brother was the only one willing to do this and in the beginning I had my reservations. We live in the country which means we have a highway, not a street very close by. Streets are scarey enough with a 6, 4 year old (with a mind of his own) and a just turned 2 year old let a lone it be a 55 mph highway. Everything is working out wonderfully though and as of this coming Wednesday my schedule will be set so that I am only working while hubs is home. They will have daddy or mommy at any given time. I feel blessed!
These are pictures of the 'scare crow' the children and their uncle built. They started off by ransacking the attic to find old clothes and that they did. I don't even know where they
came from or who they belonged too. haha It doesn't matter though with all the fun they had creating their fall scare crow. I'm not sure I dare go up in the attic just yet though! It will probably be more frightful than anything I see over Halloween! I just have to remember it was all in good fun!
They were so proud of their scare crow! They were patiently waiting with their creation to show me. Of course they all wanted me to take a picture of all four of the builders together. That turned into a leaf throwing event I'm sure you know how that goes! So much for the neatly piled leaves - oh well something for Bobby to do tomorrow. They'll soon be getting tired of the leaves but that is ok as unfortunately snow will be coming quickly. They will love it, me too actually, just not to drive in during the early morning hours.
