Lance has been working a lot lately. This leaves us with very little family time. Saturday afternoon after watching football most of the day we headed over to the park. We first did our three miles to work off all of the horrible food we had been eating all day. Then we took the kids to play. We pushed them both in the swings for a little while and then went over to the big kids playground to climb the “spider web”.
Most of the time Reese is not very adventurous but for some reason she was taking on the world that evening. She let me help her climb almost all the way to the top of the “spider web”.
And then she ran around the big kids play set (which is really, really high in some points). When we are on the toddler play set I just let her run around and do her own thing. On the big kids set, I followed her up the first time and she told me she did not want me to come with her. That hurt! Ha! It was definitely a lesson in learning when to let go as a parent and not control so much.
I am so glad we were able to spend some family time together. These next few weeks and weekends are going to crazy!
