Every Monday afternoon, the little girls have a special playtime with Aunt Anna and Aunt Mary. If it’s nice weather, they enjoy outside time, but since it has been inclement lately, they’ve been inside. Their favorite toy of choice has been a Melissa and Doug house I bought on sale in December.
A new tradition my parents started this year is a special night, once a month, where the grandchildren from each respective family come over for dinner, playtime with Grandpa and Grandma, and Bible time. This month, the day that worked best was on Monday (normally they’ll do the first and second Thursdays), so the girls stayed over after their aunties’ playtime. We pulled our Playdoh activity center, along with old Playdoh, from the attic. We hadn’t used it for years, and would you believe the Playdoh was perfectly pliable and easy to use? Playdoh with Grandpa and Grandma was most enjoyable.
