I got this idea from a friend earlier this month. She sets her kids on a blanket and they all stay there and play or read. Then she gets some time to read or do whatever she needs to. I knew I could get Jocelyn to stay, but Jackson is wanting to go everywhere, so I figured that would be hard. I decided to set some blankets out on the front lawn because I knew Jackson wouldn’t get off the blanket and go in the grass. It worked, and we all loved it!
I even got through a whole chapter in my book.
After awhile, we started seeing airplanes and that was so fun for Jackson. I think he could have sat out there all day watching the airplanes.
