Kids left to themselves get creative!

This week has been a nice one with some actual sunshine coming out again The kids have been very busy outdoors. I love when they can really play outside without coming in covered in mud!

We have been at a friend of mines home quite a bit this week and she home schools also. One day we were working on something in the house and not really paying to much attention to the kids. When we came out this is what they were doing

We keep saying that if we were "good" home school moms we would turn this all into a lesson but decided that kids learned enough in figuring out how to get it together and up on their own anyway.

On Friday they decided they wanted to sleep in it. They had a fire outside and roasted hot dogs on sticks and marshmallows. But then it started to rain and the girls chickened out and decided to come in to sleep. Joshua and Izzak though stuck to sleeping in their teepee and slept there till they got up at 7 this morning.

Here is a slideshow of them building the teepee and cooking their hot dogs.

I love the teepee the kids made! It reminds me of things we would do growing up! More kids need to hang out and do things like this.....get out the house...no computers, no tv and no video games....ya know?!?!?
