Mondays here are always so busy. Especially after being away for the weekend so my posts may be brief.
Kathleen is my "mini me" as everyone tells me. She looks exactly like I did at her age, and we have common mannerisms too. LOL She loves to help me in whatever I do. Since today I am pressed for time, and now my laptop is not running right, I came to the desktop to pull a few pictures from June, when my clematis was still in bloom. It's one of my favorite flowers! This particular day Hayley was still in school. Kathleen and I set out to do our daily chores and on this day I made sure my camera was out, and I'm so glad I did. I enjoy these moments with my girls. :-)
Getting ready to water the flowers, notice the snow boots? Smart thinking, she says...so I don't get my feet wet! LOL
This is around the front side of our house where we have wildflowers growing. My parents van and my husband's 62 Ford Galaxy convertible are in the background. The house is my neighbors. :-)
We just thought these were pretty!
My clematis plant growing up my light post. I'm so excited because every year it grows more and more and I started it from a tiny little plant.
Please overlook my irises, at the point I took the picture I hadn't yet clipped the tops off. That's the only problem with them, so beautiful when they bloom, but they don't last long.
This is one of my favorite shots. We were playing hide and seek and she ran and hid behind the large trashcan, I came over the top to snap her pic and caught an awesome little smile.
It doesn't take lots of money, or jam packed schedules to make a child smile. In fact, the simplest things I find, make them the happiest. I don't over schedule summers. We do learning but not as much as the fall. I feel they need to enjoy their days as a child, without all the hurry and worry. I feel the summer is flying by and I wish I could slow it down! Soon I will be sitting and preparing the Fall year for Kathleen. Since she will not be 5 until November I am blessed to have her at home with me another year. I am excited about lesson planning, but enjoying the summer pace.
I'll be adding another one of my favorite songs to a separate posts, in honor of my girls. There are several I like, but will do them every couple of days.
