Family Favorites!

Happy Math & Music Monday and Labor Day!

I hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend! We had planned to go to the lake this weekend, but decided we just wanted to spend time together at home. I have to say, it was the right choice. I’ve been traveling a lot more for Ally Dog Depot (so exciting), so it’s nice to spend some time at home. Because most of us spend time together as a family on this holiday, I thought it would be fun to share with you some of our Family Favorites. Below is each member of my family’s favorite thing to do together. As always, we would love to hear from you what your favorite things are too!

Fun Fact

“We didn’t realize we were making memories, we just knew we were having fun!” – Pooh Bear

Isn’t this quote the sweetest quote? I just love it. I sometimes think we have to do something big to make a memory, but in all reality, it’s the little things that matter most. Ok, let’s get this party started.

We LOVE projects! When I say projects, I mean big ones. We love to remodel homes together as a family. Our current project is our Pool House (aka The Getaway!! The pool is long gone, but maybe someday, lol!) We have taken out walls, busted up old tile and are now working on putting it all together! The girls love to help with every part of the process, especially being Pody’s supervisor. Lol I’ll post more on my Instagram page (@mathandmusicmommy) as we make progress. So be sure to follow along. I love all the life lessons and skills the girls are learning when they help us.

Lately the girls (especially Sister P) have really been into making and playing board games. It has been so fun. They find old supplies around our house or from the different projects, and they build a board game out of the scraps. Then we play them together as a family. They really have made some super fun games.

Sister K’s favorite thing to do as a family, when asked, is snuggle! I have to say I love this one too! We love to put on our PJs and snuggle up on the couch. Sometimes we read and sometimes we watch a movie. Our current favorite is the new Aladdin. If you haven’t watched it, it’s a MUST! So, so good!

Pody’s favorite thing to do together as a family is FISHING! We love to go to the lake and go fishing. I have to agree, I love that we put the phones away and spend time together. We have made such special memories in a fishing boat!

Well, that’s a wrap. Those are our current favorite things to do together as a family. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday! Let’s all put our phones down, go outside and fun with our kids!

Don’t worry, the fun doesn’t stop here… Be sure to follow us this week on our Facebook Page and Instagram! We have some fun activities planned!
