Our family survives the long midwestern winter by going on adventures. On a typical Saturday morning, we wake up, have breakfast, and then sit on the couch trying to figure out what to do with ourselves for the rest of the day. Inevitably, we decide to get out of the house and have an "adventure."
What does this mean?
Well, it depends. Sometimes we shoot guns. Real guns. Sometimes we go fishing (in the summer.) Sometimes we go shopping (not often b/c we don't have much moolah...) Very often, we go to Barnes and Noble and read magazines. Lately, this one has been a favorite because Ella loves to crawl around on the floor in their kids' section and play.
Then I realized something...she was learning more than how to read. She was learning how to CLIMB.
(Insert alarmed facial expression here.)
Wanna see? Watch this...
At least she's having fun! She did also discover that they have books, but that was more of an afterthought...
