In our last few days before starting school, we are relishing slow, lazy, creative days at home. These days are far from neat and tidy!
One afternoon, I listened to all the creative play and fun going on around me and I had to laugh looking around at all the floors and surfaces surrounding the play. All these photos were taken within a few minutes of each other - real life, my friends.
It was like an explosion had gone off inside our home - mess everywhere. Clutter drives me crazy but in this moment I realized that someday I'd miss seeing this little boy holed up under the table making a Play-Doh store. I'll miss stepping on melty beads and seeing them tossed around like confetti. I decided to embrace the moment and just enjoy the beauty of the fun being had.
And of course, like any good mama, after all that - we had a rousing session of clean up!!!!
