I have a 'list' of things I want to do with the kids when they are young. There are of course the big things...accept Jesus as their Savior, get an education, ....the major things in life, but there are also the little things.
We did 2 of those little things in the past week.
-Get ice cream from the ice cream truck. Every kid should remember doing this. I remember running 2-3 streets over with a handful of change trying to catch the truck. The girls have done this many times when we lived in Cape Coral, but this is only the 2nd time since we have moved to our current home. As soon as Mark saw the truck drive by he hollered for us to come outside. Ty was thrilled to get a Spongebob Ice Cream. We talked to the lady and she said she would be by every Saturday night. It looks like we will be doing this again.
-Sleep in a tent...ok, so we didn't actually sleep in it this time. Mark set up our tent in the front yard, complete with electricy to watch a video on the little tv.
We plan to have part of our school day in there tomorrow. Should be fun.
Maybe I will sit down one day this week and right down all the little things. I think all the little things are what add up to make a great childhood. I hope our children look back one day and realize how much effort we put into making life fun and exciting for them. We sure enjoy doing it!
