Because I have so many grandchildren, and they all like to play with my iPad, I have a forder on it named Kid's Stuff so it's easy for them to find the games and kids' activities they like. Also, because they're sometimes not as careful as they should be, I have a heavy duty frame/holder on it which makes it waterproof and also protects it when it is accidentally dropped.

My daughter, Amy, has the largest bunch of rhubarb growing in her back yard. She doesn't like it very much so it doesn't get picked and is allowed to go to seed. I've never seen so many seed stems on a rhubarb as this one has. The kids and I went out to do something about it. Armed with a large sharp knife (which the kids weren't allowed to touch) and a big bag, I hacked away at the plant, getting rid of all the seeds and filling the bag with lots of rhubarb which I brought home with me. It's all chopped and bagged in my freezer now waiting to be made into rhubarb crumble, rhubarb pies, and anything else I can think of to make.
Every time I opened the front door my senses were assaulted by the heady sweet fragrance of spring lilacs in full bloom. Heavenly.

And then when Tate got up, we went out to the backyard so the kids could show me their moves on the trampoline. Syd wanted me to take pictures of her 'in the air'.
There were about three flowers in the back yard. The best was this sunflower.
And that was my day with the Woolf cubs. No stress, fun, creative and active.
