There should only be two rleationships I seek approval for or that I need to "do well by". God my Father and my family. The ones that I feed every day.
Do I do well by them, do THEY like me? Then I thought about this blog. I began this Blog 5 years ago. I am going to do something new. ... I am going to begin writing to my kids. It may bore you and you do not even have to read on,
So you will see a different format from time to time.
My tribe: Today we went Blueberry picking. I unplugged the TV and some of you were not happy because we were not meeting friends or taking friends with us. And some of you had very bad attitudes because I was ''forcing" you to spend time not at home. The place where you love to be, because there are instant buddies right outside your doorstep. Alas we made it to the farm unscathed.
Gathered our favorite buckets and began to hunt. Big -A your idea was that we break into teams and hide and be as quiet as we can and pick as fast as we can. Best genius plan all summer.
You and I teamed together. J-Man and EQ were another. Little Roo and GG were another. (except for some reason I did not take one photo of them...bad mom...bad) We picked out hearts content and all I could think of was I didn't want summer to end. J-man , I looked over at you and kept thinking how sweet it was that you were here, having fun, picking berries with your family, wondering what kind of recipes we could make with it when we go home.
. Then you all found each other and began teasing and being loud and well obnoxious and well that feeling ended. Exhibit A: Obnoxious stuff going on below
I was glad for fall being around the corner and yet grateful for a time where we could enjoy the bounty of the land. .
The condition of our feet always depends on the length we stay and well we were there pretty long.
Little Roo I attended a Kindergarten curriculum night this evening. Saw where you would sit, listened to the school rules and it hit me. You are a big girl. I am not sure if I am ready for that yet. You are my sweetest little love. I am so glad its half day kindergarten because I get you for a whole morning this year....just you.
We laughed today, we cried, and we also had some frustrating words. Put tonight everyone is tucked in as I write this and this is a miracle for the day. To have everyone under one roof and healthy.
Love you my babies more than you could ever feel or imagine.
