Why I am so tired today. . .

I am trying to keep my eyes open this morning. We ran and ran and ran this weekend and relaxed at the same time. (Is that possible). We got home last night and then headed to a birthday party until bedtime.

I am sharing these pictures from our weekend with Emily at Chatting at the Sky for Tuesday's Unwrapped. I feel so blessed to get away from it all as a family and spend some quality time together.

I had to share a few pictures with you from the weekend. It was filled with camping, family time at Grandpa's farm, and a family reunion. My sister-in-law is a teacher and she just took a class on the brain. She said that she learned that brain cells are built by experiences. Our kids should be smart because we try to give them as many experiences that we can. Here a just a few. . .

Playing with the kittens at the farm.

Taking turns driving the tractor.

Hiding in the corn.

Exploring in the soybean field.

Searching for shells.

Brainquest around the fire (building those brain cells with new experiences and brain games!)

Roasting hot dogs on the fire.

Sunset on the Lake.

Pool time with the cousins.

If you sister-in-law's theory is true, then your kiddos are on their way to genius status with all those sweet experiences! Thanks for sharing them with us!

There is only so much that can be learned from a book. . .the textures of our mind and memory can only be derived from up close and personal contact. . .and it looks like your beautiful family is getting their fair share of that! No wonder you were feeling tired!
