Off to Play with the Kids

"If mothers could learn to do for themselves what they do for their children, we should have happier households. Let the mother go out to play! If she would only have courage to let everything go when life becomes too tense, and just take a day, or half a day, out in the fields, or with a favorite book, or in a picture gallery looking long and well at just two or three pictures, or in bed, without the children, life would go on far more happily for both children and parents."

This is such a great quote! Today was overcast and threatening rain, so I really didn't want to haul all three boys outside, but they were getting crazy inside so I just thought, "What the hay...I am taking them out!"

We had so much fun. I am so glad we did it!
