The kids went on a bug/rock/treasure hunt this morning. I have been needing ONE MORE big yogurt container so that they could each have their own. This morning when Kellen finished off the rest of the yogurt, I knew that today was a good day for a treasure hunt.
Before you go thinking that I'm so great and all, I do have a confession....I don't have it all under control.
THIS, is where I found the baby this morning.
Yep. That's my 15 month old standing in the bathroom sink.
It gets even better. I'm not even the one who found him. One of the other children actually informed me of his whereabouts. I dont' know why, but the baby is suddenly obsessed with climbing in the bathrooms. Hum.
Anyway, I got him out of the sink, handed out the bug collecting containers, hopped on the Google translate so that I could explain to my Russian speaking children what we were doing, and then we all headed outside.
He likes it!
He wasn't so sure for a while.
He kinda just walked around the yard. I honestly think he was trying to AVOID any bugs.
Any treaure here?
Pretty little thing
Finding some good stuff
Now that I'm done, I wanna swing!
Hunting for ants....in an ant bed.
*Now before you go calling CPS saying that I let my kids play in ant beds, let me clear this up. Luke really wanted ants for his collection. He is 8 and he knows the consequences of messing with ant beds. I would NOT let any of my younger kids play in an ant bed.*
Oh, and for the record, he didn't get bit.
NOW he's starting to get in on the fun!
Little brother want to help
Look what I got!
