Quiet Time and West Coast Park

It's quiet time in our house. Levi is napping, and I've instituted (as of today) quiet time for Caleb and myself. He hasn't napped since he was 2 1/2, and mommy needs an hour of quiet in the afternoons to do her Bible study. So, thanks to my friend, Camille, I've started a reward chart with Caleb. If he has a quiet time, which means he does not come out of his room to ask me questions or for the 1 million other reasons he can find to come out of his room, he will get a sticker on his chart. After 5 stickers, he will get a little prize. We're starting with 5 for now and will move up after he grasps the concept. I hung the chart on the bathroom door in his room so he can see it. Right now he's working for a yo-yo, which he's wanted for a long time. :-)

Even though it's quiet time in our house, it isn't quiet. They are doing some major remodeling of the apartments 2 and 3 floors above us. Apparently there are lots of men up there with hammers and drills. With concrete walls and marble floors, they might as well be remodeling our apartment for as loud as it is in here. This is supposed to go on for 2 weeks, so I'm not sure Levi will be napping very soundly during that time.

This past weekend we took the kids to West Coast Park. It was really hot, but they had fun playing for a while.

Yeah.... so glad to hear... let me know how it works... and for a yo-yo he is sure to stay in his room... awesome.

And I too love WC park but there is no shade.. it is way to hot during the day for sure... next time you go let us know we are right down the street.
