Backyard Fun....

In the last five days the girls have more fresh air than they have all month.....They haven't had to go far to get it either.....Every day this week they have played in the back yard.....Who needs fancy parks or days out!! hehehe

Monday it was raining and they played out....A bit of rain didn't stop them....They had their boots and coats on!!

Tuesday they were out and I overheard our neighbour saying they were playing too loudly.....Which annoyed me so much.....How do you play quietly on a scooter? I'll just remember that the next time his kid is playing outside at 10pm at night!! I didn't stop them in fact I told them to carry on!!

Wednesday the girls had fun with chalk which involved colouring the bricks in on the wall and of course hopscotch....


Thursday....More playing outside....I hardly saw them....They only came in for meals and were back out again....There was a funny moment....I thought the girls were banging something loudly so opened the back door and all I said was 'Stop the banging please'.....I heard a voice from over the wall say 'Sorry'.....It was my neighbour banging not my girls! Awkward!!

On Friday they played outside all day too....I was planning on an afternoon of baking which they said they wanted no part of....Playing was more important! I wasn't going to argue!

They've scooted...played with dolls...slid down the slide hundreds of times...ate lunch out there...jumped in puddles...had lots of fresh air and slept so much better on a night...Fantastic!!

  3. THIS is why I want a garden! My wee man has been outside so much using the nonni's garden while we have been here in Italy it has been a fight to get him back inside! It's so good for them too. #countrykids

  4. Hmm. Playing too loudly? In our little village, especially in the summer, you'll hear the laughter and sounds of the neighbourhood kids playing well into the night and it doesn't bother us one bit. In fact, it sort of makes-us happy? If happiness was a sound, it would be that of kids playing :) #CountryKids.

  11. Kids should be outside, all that fresh air is so good for them, and they can let off steam and make as much noise as they want to! My little one broke up yesterday and I intend to spend lots of time outside!

  18. Now that's so refreshing to hear Kim,
    I remember when I was young we went out early in the morning and only appeared home when called in for lunch and dinner and tried desperately to wrangle 'just another five minutes pleeeeeeeese' at the end of the day as the light faded.
    I love to hear of children being outdoors.
    It's lovely to think that they get on so well playing together too.
    Enjoy your week xoxo
