Finding the Peace of God, the Love of Family, and the Blessing of Creativity

There is nothing better then time spent with good friends! Today we were blessed with a day spent with just such friends! The kids played outside in the sunshine (ok in the clouds) and I got to sit with my dear friend and chit chat all day! It just doest get better! It was simple fun that is refreshing to everyone! No one wanted to leave and I am realizing how important good friends are to everyone. I get time to sit and talk peacefully (ok mostly peacefully) and the kids get time live in new world created with friends! New idea and thoughts that are shared and bless everyone. As a homeschooler, the subject of socialization comes up here and there. Many times we talk about the kids who are not given time to be with their peers, but what about the moms? How many of us moms don't take the time to socialize together? Sure our kids need friends, but we do too. Taking our kids to a class or to some other activity outside the home is a great way to meet people and to socialize, but we forget that taking the time to sit with friends can be so much more effective sometimes! Not only do the moms get time together , but the kids also get a chance to work together, to solve problems, and even work out difficulties! Sometimes we forget that playtime with friends is simple and yet so effective! So here's to playtime and great friends!!!!!!
The kids were making their own Lilypads! Aren't they cute?!
I hope that you all find time to have some fun with friends too! Happy Spring!
