{have you played today?}

child's play
I don't now why but I bought this ball the other day
I think the polka dots where calling my name
It brought out my inner child
and made us all laugh silly
{try throwing and catching a ball with your feet..impossible to do!}
remember to make everyday count!

this is so cute... yesterday i went to visit my friend and her son oliver (he was in last weeks post on my blog) and they have a lovely yard. there were different sizes of balls scattered about (they also have a 13yr old boy) and we sat in the sunshine... watching her husband and sons play with all the balls - playing catch and oliver running around kicking the balls... it was so delightful.. pure joy. xx

Hi Koralee,
I make it a point to try and play everyday, I think my family likes it better too! Sometimes I play with my art supplies, and other times I play outside, but you are right, we should all play!!!

YES!!!! This is the key....one day the Lord said very clearly to me, "LET THE JOY OF THE LORD BE YOUR STRENGTH!" and you know, that is the only way to survive some teacher moments, non?

Instead of blogging today, i was out playing basketball shooting hoops with my kids today!

We had a blast....between that and riding my bike all around the city! I'm pooped! but I thought I'd try to come out and make my blog rounds...and of course, BLUE BIRD is on that list!!!!

beautiful reminder for us today!

Hi Koralee,

I tried visiting earlier today and blogger was playing up and just left a message and then the power went off momentarily... so I will try again.
Third time lucky.
Lovely post and sweet polka dot ball.
It is so important to make every day count.
Thank for reminding us of this.
I hope that you are having a lovely week.

Oh My Koralee, you are so delusional...{EXTREMELY SWEET, but delusional}...the house is old and quite crooked...but then so am I...I would love to have you in the hood! Have you toured the little house beside us?{phenomenal shop}There was a cute little house behind us {we looked at it before we bought "the money pit"}Great deck and sweet kitchen...I'll keep my "eagle eyes peeled"...smile on...

P.S. My crooked living room is the destination of my next post..."somehow, lilacs hide a whole lot of imperfections."

Barbara said...

Does using the exercise ball at the gym count? Or is that too much work and no play? ;)
