This black pipe (or as well call it, The Tunnel) has been offering homeschool PE opportunities for my children since long before Apollo was born. Chuck brought it home from work one day (don’t ask me why…I married the man, I procreated with the man, I LOVE the man, but none of that means I understand the why’s behind the random
crap treasures he brings home from work).
And to be fair…the kids love this thing.
It’s a place for daydreaming…
A place to learn balance…
A place to comptemplate the meaning of life.
And so much more.
The kids stand on it and walk on it, like a giant barrel.
They tip it on it’s side and climb up it. They roll each other in it. They hide in it. And, CRAZIEST of all, they get inside and roll down the hill in it. Yeah, the big hill.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again and again, toys are overrated…if not completely unnecessary. Kids needs space. Kids need to be bored. Kids need the great outdoors. Easier said than done, right?
Life Still Feels Crazy
Life still feels really crazy right now. I don’t even feel like I remember a before. All the kids are home all the time. Hezekiah is doing his first year of community college online…he’s never done online learning before. Jubilee has been struggling with online learning since March. My difficult kids are still difficult but there is no escaping them, them escaping each other…the only one who escapes is Chuck. Sometimes I’m surprised he comes home. Just kidding, we’re awesome of course he comes home.
