    PS: The treasure hunt organised for Lenny by Immy was pure genius. 👍💫 I have never seen a child as thrilled with lollies and ‘fish biscuits’. 😂Riley dressing as a pirate was great fun too. How loved your children are.

      @Cyndy ~ great comment! My kids remember how we always came together as a family for our evening meal. No TV’s, no cell phones and we would often play games or do some sort of activity. In fact, if a phone rang and any of the 3 kids even jumped they would have to clean up after dinner. My kids are grown, having kids of their own and they are carrying on with our family tradition. I also used to date them to eat with oven mittens in or use serving utensils instead of regular. I once fed my nieces and nephews in the bathtub. Lol. I knew it was going to be messy and they thought it was great fun! Fun then, abusive now? Lol. Out of my 5 kids only 2 play video games, my oldest and youngest who were born in the same day just many years apart. They are so much alike!

      We did treasure hunts for my daughter when she was little. Her dad would drive out to an old abandoned farm and take an old jewelry box or whatever we could find and he would hide it and then let her find it while we explored. I always bought costume jewelry and little nicnacks when we explored antique shops so that I was prepared for a treasure hunt. My daughter has carried on the tradition with her kids and husband now and she remembers the fun of finding the treasures as a little girl.
      I always tell people, your kids won't remember the presents you bought them but they will remember the adventures you had with them. Our daughter always reminds us of how many adventures she loved and the hikes, birdwatching, fishing, camping, night hiking, country drives until we found a place to have a picnic and getting lost and letting her find our way home using the map. She was always April O'Neil the reporter from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and she was our guide. 😍🤣 She loved to show us through the trails and point out plants and fun facts. We would hike for days and camp when we got tired. She was never afraid of the woods and we made sure she was comfortable in any surroundings which I love that you guys do with your boys. I think it's important for kids to feel good about their environment and it teaches them security through life.
      Keep doing what you're doing. 😘💙💚❤❤❤❤

    The boys have added a whole new dimension to your story. As a Gramma to 9 and Great Gramma to 2 adorable and brilliant children I Love seeing parents exposing children to a non traditional up bringing as I feel strongly children learn as they live. No need for government indoctrination centers to grow well rounded and intellectual children. There's no doubt that Lenny and Darwin will be well grounded and exceptional young men and adults.
