One day last week Monique brought the grandkids for the day. It was bitter cold outside; so much for pony rides. For a while we read books and played with blocks downstairs, and suddenly Charis said, “I want to go to Narnia.” So we did, and everyone had a wonderful time!
Putting on lots of bling.
Lots and lots!
Playing peekaboo in the Ikea tent.
I see you!
And a hilarious game of “Ring Around the Lamp-post.” (Note that the lamp-post is in focus. The kids are just moving so fast they’re blurs!)
Keep Away around the lamp-post.
Charis couldn’t understand why Kol kept trying to be in front of her when she wanted to lead. How do you explain to a 4 year old that even if she starts out leading, if she runs faster and catches up to him, then he’ll be leading?
But the hilarity of the game quickly dispelled any disappointment. And it also made sure that everyone was going to be REALLY ready for their naps! Even Monique got a nap in Aslan’s Tent–the parent’s bedroom one, not the Ikea one!
