The Wrestle Pit

Now that the weather has been spring- and even summer-like, we have been outside a LOT. The weather seems to have given us all a boost of energy, and so we spend as much time as we can outdoors and then come inside to take a rest from the sun. This, for CDE, has translated into lots of wrestling. On the floor, on the couch, on the bed, wherever. It's almost always dangerous and has me on edge, but I secretly love it, too. So even though we've done things like this before, we've decided to create The Wrestle Pit. This involves taking all the blankets, all the pillows, and anything else soft to go in the pit (our sofas all have attached cushions, so those unfortunately are out). Anyone else do this as a kid? I have fond memories of this. The boys loved it. They decided to go naked, but then Cole caved and put on PJs. A great way to "wind down" after a long, great day outside.

Oh yeah, and we got a new rug. Small preview. :)

Do you have a wrestle pit or something like it? Any more ideas like this for burning off energy for your boys (or girls!)! Love to hear stories!

So, first of all, please tell me that the rug came this week and is new since last weekend. Secondly, AJ would have been all over that one!

Janet, yes, the rug came about 3 days ago. :) You know, I thought about doing something like that while y'all were here, but then we would have had to steal all your bedding. I should have asked. :)
