We are having one of those special cozy kind of week ends. We lit our first fire in the woodstove, mostly for the romance but it was the perfect nod to the first day of Fall. Cozy business having a crackling fire ablaze in the living room.
The boys snuggled up and I finished reading them Danny the Champion of the World by Roald Dahl. Great book, simply great. But at the very end we found this – I love the thought of authors imparting a special life message to kids at the end of a book.
Next up – make your own pizza.
I make dough and cook up pizzas often but today I gave each boy his own dough and they made their own little pizza’s. It was so simple but they were floored by the whole thing. They kept complementing one another “Wow, Emmett you did such a good job on your pizza”.
Next up a movie night, we watched and simply loved The Black Stallion . I think I saw it as a child but I cant say enough about how beautiful and simple it is.
I guess it’s turning out to be a boy’s adventure story kind of weekend. Might have to throw some Pippy Long Stockings in there tomorrow to level the whole thing out!
Happy first day of Fall to all!
