Trampoline Tumbling on Wonderful Wednesdays...


My dear friend Amber of We Stood Together and I have recently worked out a winning arrangement for Wednesdays when our two older kiddos are at Playschool for 3 hours. One week I take both the younger siblings for the morning and the next week she does. Usually the one with the littlies takes them to a fun local music class for some energy-burning! Which then leaves one of us with about 2.5 hours blissfully child-free. Except rather than sipping cappucinos and getting manicures, we tend to spend the time tearing through house, sorting out closets and outgrown clothing, and other such un-glamourous but must-do tasks. Nonetheless, it is a relaxing and refreshing time off!! And we are both feeling Rather Pleased with this new arrangement and the practical way we can help each other as SAHMs get a little time out for those things we otherwise just don't get time for!

Soooo, today we had the pleasure of Miss Harper's company. Eli and Harper adore each other, get along well and among many other activities, enjoyed a good romp on the trampoline in the soft Autumn sunshine. Any attempt to actually decently capture two bouncing toddlers in the same shot however... yeah, pretty slim chance!!

Taking a moment to chill with Mama - love my snugglebug!



I think Eli is trying to impress Harper with his Bear impression!
Bear roars and Little Girl scampers with squeals of glee!

  3. Great shots! Trampolining and blue skies, we've had a bit of that around here too lately. Perfect outdoor running around weather. That does sound like a super arrangement you've got going on! It's amazing how much you can get done without a little one (or two) around, even for the smallest amount of time.
