Has this been a long week for you? Seems like everyone is feeling stressed right now. Monday started off with my usual morning chat with Britney.....she called and I launched into some typical complaint or joke about the kids being kids.....and was stopped abruptly when she told me her grandfather died. So sad for the Starnes family.....funeral arrangements and Blake's flights to Dallas to be with everyone.....lots of prayers and thoughts for so many we love.
All of my little annoyances seem very trivial in comparison.....Lainey's being super feisty these days...challenging me in new and different ways....the terrible twos for sure. The boys are surprisingly cooperative at the moment, but daily rain has kept us inside, turning even the best of attitudes into fussy ones.
So, the weekend is near and I'm working on a game plan to cheer everyone up and have some summer fun, as the leaves are starting to change in scattered areas, which means the weather will be soon, too. No complaints from me.....but I do want to enjoy the sun while we have it.
Maybe a trip to Deanna Rose Farmstead?
Little ones are always happy here.
We found a butterfly garden and nature walk last trip and I can't wait to get back to take trail into the woods.
And, lots of walks on their beautiful grounds.
A project to complete for Blake and me. Well, kind of me. Blake paints and I usually watch. 2 coats have been applied so far....now, we just need to distress and then put an antique glaze on plus hardware. Isn't this piece darling? LOVE it.
Definitely a night out at Worlds of Fun.
Lainey wants to go on the "skoo bus" again.
And, maybe the kangaroos.
Jack and Carter ride a lot together, which warms my heart. Brothers can be so sweet.
All 3! What fun they have.....and equally, Blake and me watching them.
I think that might cover it for us. You? What's on your agenda?
