Joined my "old" friend and her kids for a picnic and frolicking at Metcalf bottoms. We walked. We looked. We walked some more. We snacked. The kids wallered in the creek. Then the kids slept. (I know the chest clip is low. She was trying to escape and pulled it down) This afternoon after a... Continue Reading →
I love em. Love spending my days with them...its easier to be a better, kinder, more patient parent on these days I don't have to work. Wish it didn't have to end! Great day.
With the time change we overslept and woke up as church was starting. Oops. Cows needed feeding and groceries needed getting so we divided and conquered.

Stopped by the store because the kids drank all the milk. I had a coupon for a birthday cake that came (quite belatedly) for Claire's birthday. But, cakes cake. Caroline laid on the floor and wailed because "why is Claire always the special one" after I explained to her that we would all eat it... Continue Reading →
Seeing the farmers (in our case, hubby and father-in-law) out spreading fertilizer brings me mixed emotions. On one hand...YAY, it's SPRING. On the other hand it is the start of their long spring hours, that leads to long summer hours, which leads to long fall harvest hours. Basically, I'll see Lynn while he is working...
