8: Spring Break ~ Pillow Skateboarding

Hello Dear Bloggy-Blog,

It's been quite a while since we last saw each other. Please excuse my absence. It's spring break over here at The Little White Kitchen and we've had our fair share of spring break excitement.

Each day holds a new adventure. Today it was the scientific examination of rocks and all of the geological fantasies that come along with this type of creative play. The oodles upon oodles of rocks on the back stoop were enough to keep everyone busy while mama prepared Creamy Mushroom Quinoa Chowder for din-din.

Just the other day, however, the theme of the morning was "pillow skateboarding".

It began by properly applying shark tattoos to the top of the wheelless skateboard deck.

Then properly identifying said object as the "charcs scatbord." (original spelling prior to Mommy making a few suggestions—which you see reflected here)

Teaching baby brother the proper stance atop a pile of wobbly pillows.

And wrapping up the lesson with true couch surfing lessons and hand-sign gesturing. With all good intentions, said hand-signs were believed to represent hang ten, dude, but mistakenly got confused with the hand-sign representing the Devil or The Texas Longhorns. I place my vote for the Texas Longhorns. Hook 'em, horns!

It's been good to spend a little time with you today dear bloggy-blog. We'll be seeing you again soon.

Yours truly,

PS — This post signifies the 8 week point in our countdown, not that I'm keeping track :)

I'm convinced my eldest son watched this video prior to his instructional wheelless skateboarding lesson with baby brother.


  1. I hope you are teaching those boys how to skateboard my friend! Andy is on track to try with Henry soon. An important skill indeed! They are in good hands. I miss you and love you and am still LOVING the chai :)
    congrats on 8 weeks left, a true accomplishment for you all

  2. Changing toss cushions by season, not just holiday themes, adds visual interest to your home decor. Whether your style is classic or comfy, you can easily make over the look of a room simply by switching throw pillows to celebrate the season.
