I have to say that my very favorite thing to do on the planet is to listen to my kids playing. We were putting together the big climber tonight and moving around the yard toys to get ready for construction to begin. Brent was also helping and Denzell too for much of the outside time.
As a result of all of the "older people" working, the younger crew had to entertain themselves. No ball games were going on out there tonight. No "home run wiffle ball derbies".
Tonight what you heard was the chatter of 9 children, ages 4 to 11. There were children in the little playhouses. Zeeky pretending on the phone. Julianne squealing at the dogs (they were in the kennel to keep them from taking our parts or escaping) from outside of the gate. Julianne insisting that the sprinkler be turned on. Destiny saying "Mom, look at this!" despite my telling her that I was trying to put together a new toy. Dayton, Jose, and Forrest playing Star Wars and Zeeky laughing out loud when Forrest when pretend to fall to the ground.
Those were the main sounds that I heard tonight. There were other things of course, but those were the loudest. Squeals of joy and lots of laughter were in abundance. They already have plans for that climber tomorrow too! I am looking forward to listening!
