Today I Resolve...

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.

We're back in the full swing of school now and our week has been packed full of learning and fun. Our week though has a fun 'free' day tagged onto the end ~ we attend a local co-op on Friday mornings and then our afternoons are free of any teaching.

Today, after having a great week learning with our kids I resolve to spend the day just having FUN with them. Doing nothing other than laughing, playing, goofing off, going for a bike ride or a walk, getting down on the floor to crawl around, turning our dining room table into a fort, maybe even making a mess and cooking a thing or two {solely to rid my refrigerator of the overabundance of zucchini and squash}.

Basically, just enjoy some time with my kids that doesn't revolve around planning - unless it's planning fun. :)

  1. What a way to end the week. Our Friday are very free and unplanned. It's refreshing.

  4. What a perfectly fun way to spend the day! Forts are my favorite. I'm kind of taking the day off...I'm alone for the day (!) and have been enjoying NOT looking at my list.

    Stick to your resolve for fun and I will too!! I refuse to break down and work today.... :)

  5. Monday is our "take a break" day - my girls have a terrible readjustment to daddy going back to work! Fridays we spend together running errands, so it's still a good day. =) Hope you enjoy and have a fun, productive time in the kitchen! Nice to have some coffee with you this morning!

  8. I love it! We try to make Fridays our "fun day" around here too. I'm guilty of not taking time to spend doing those fun things with the kids often enough...thanks for the reminder that it's OKAY and even desirable to drop everything and play sometimes!

  9. It definitely creates an atmosphere of learning during the week if Fridays are something you look forward to.

    We started Friday Fun Buckets, where we have little post its tucked inside and each Friday one is selected and we do whatever is listed, like head to the park, stay up an hour later, game night, you pick dinner one night, ice cream, you get the idea.

    They struggle to not be in such a hurry because they know what awaits them on Fridays.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  11. Sounds lovely!

    And good idea with the Friday "free" days. When I was in early elementary we attended a co-op once a week as well, and my mom did the same thing. Co-op in the morning, lots of play time in the afternoon. We loved it.

  12. I just attended a conference where I was convicted that I need to take more time to play and have fun with my kids.
