A terrible hand…

Our family loves to play the game Quiddler.  A lot of times we will start a game before the kids go off to school and then finish when they get home.img_4263

This was a recent hand that I had.  No vowels and one of the kids went out right away so there was no way for me to even try to fix this.  Zero points for the mama on this one!

Light homework load

When the kids come home from school, I like to have a snack waiting and I like to sit with them and hear about whatever they want to share.  Sometimes they talk about school, sometimes it’s friends, sometimes they just joke around with each other, and sometimes they are in a bad mood and don’t want to talk at all.  I just enjoy being there at this time to reconnect with them.IMG_1694

On this particular day there were only two of them and neither one had much homework so there was time for a few games of UNO and a snack before getting on with the afternoon.  So much laughter and fun – I am grateful for these times!
