i love having nests in my yard
this one was right on the fence by the gate that separates our front yard from our back yard
for about 2 weeks we took the long way around
saturday the nest was empty and normal activity resumed

i love watching them play from afar
when they don’t see me



such joy!

the last couple of days i’ve been
crabby
short tempered
easily frustrated
not very nice to be around

maybe it’s the end of summer
maybe it’s a lack of break from chaos
whatever it is
i’m d.o.n.e.

i look at this pic

and i see 4 happy, loving, obedient, good-natured boys
i know that it could be so much worse

so i am going to focus on the positive
take a lot of deep breaths
and enjoy the last 2 1/2 weeks of summer
with my wonderful kids!

(and now i am off to a 3  hour meeting to put together soccer registration packets for next year – with half a dozen grown women and no kids – a first in over 12 years for me – maybe that will also help improve my mood!!)

    • yeah – but this wasn’t so much of a ‘meeting’ as 6 women getting together to collate, staple and stuff envelopes :)

  1. 1. You can pick up a snail without getting your fingers slimy. 2. It’s important to have “girl time” – especially for someone who lives with boys!
    3. Yes – the boys are wonderful and I’m so thankful for your parenting of them.
    4. POWER UP for the next 2 1/2 weeks. You’ll make it!
