A new blog and new weekly FUN!

I would like to welcome you to my new blog! My Collective Life... this blog, much like my life, will be composed of many topics. Pretty much anything that is happening or comes to my mind! I hope you will enjoy it here. I have lots of fun things planned for us! One of which is....

{drum roll}

Make me merry Monday badge

And guess what? Today is Monday! I know its a bit late in the day, but work with me, will ya? It took me awhile to come up with the idea. So anyways, each Monday I will start a post here telling you all something that I like. It might be something I like to do, or something I like to eat... or it maybe some place or something we enjoy as a family. You get the picture. Something that Makes me MERRY, hence the name. Then it will be your turn. Go blog about something that makes YOU merry! Oh, and you can put my nifty little badge (see above) in your post using this code...

Then head on back here and leave your link in my Mr. Linky so we can all come visit and see what makes you merry... spreading merriment through all of blogdom!! Everyone can play, if you don't have a blog just leave your merriment in the comments!
See? Sounds fun huh? So lets get started, shall we?

I love to take the kids to the park. We have a local park that we call "our park". Its a nice small park. There are always nice people there... and respectful kids. Alot of stay-at-home moms and dads frequent the park. I have met fellow homeschoolers there as well. We recently joined a homeschool group that is going to be meeting at another local park every Monday, so we may change "our park" as we get to know the people in this group, but for now it is this park that we call our own.
One thing that amazes me about the park is how Tyler always makes a "friend" while we're there. Always. It makes me think about how nice this world would be if everyone made friends so easily, ya know? But anyways...
I love to watch Tyler play and pretend with the other kids at the park. I love to put Emily in the baby swing and watch her giggle as she swings toward me and away from me. I love to watch her face light up as the kids run past her. I love to bounce on the springy-teeter totter-thing with Emily and Tyler on the other end.

Playing at the park with my kids Makes me merry.
How about you?
