a feeling of calm and a twinge of sadness

Today I had a phone conversation with little A's teacher regarding all the plans for his school placement next year. I want to protect him and keep him safe from his little heart breaking, or from being overwhelmed. I know this is something moms have to go thru.
I did end the conversation feeling very good about the events and milestones ahead for sweet little A. As this year draws to an end my heart is full of gratitude and love for the wonderful teachers that have been in his life. Tomorrow there will be so many tears ... tears of pride, tears of thankfulness and of course tears from the idea of branching out and all that these little ones have accomplished in a short years time.
tomorrow I will witness him walk across a stage exiting preschool and entering kindergarten
a transition I know that he is apprehensive about ~ and I know in my heart he is ready for, he will enjoy all that 5K has to offers. There will be ups and downs-hard days and fantastic days... all the while this proud bursting with LOVE mama will be there with bells on!

sweetness inspiring me

There is something so precious about sweet baby lambs. When I heard that twins were born at our favorite family farm my son and I rushed to see them. He has always had a soft place in his heart for lambs. They have a angelic quality~ and I think that is why.
I could barely contain my excitement because we were able to go in the pen with them, and they wanted to be near us. My son was very excited as well! The lambs wanted to chew on him. and my camera strap as well!
We also went outside to a pen where they werent as people friendly but --oh just as cute. I got a few great shots of them looking right at me(my camera).

We also were able to see a family of new "kids". have you ever seen baby goats? Talk about CUTE!  I don"t know if you can tell by the picture, but there are 5 or more babies in a bucket!!!
I was overwhelmed with the sweetness on this day at the farm!

home sweet home

Hello friends,

I am so excited that I was able to get a photo of these babies. The mother robin has built her nest a few years in a row- in our "lean-to" shed area where we keep supplies and lawn tractor,etc. My husband will be tearing it down this year -soon- so I attempted to deter her from building again-by removing anything flat and above eye level. I soooooooooo didnt want her nest to be disturbed by my not-such- a wild-life-lover husband. I found this nest VERY low in the shed, in some snowmobile suspensions that are stacked up. When I saw the little eggs, I said to myself,"Oh,sweetie" (mama bird) Now I am making sure it is safe.Today it was raining and dripping right in there so I put a chair cushion up against the outside as a barrier. Silly, I know.

Hello friends, I hope you had a lovely weekend.
We are doing good here. We enjoyed some warmer days and I delighted in being outside with the little one, taking pictures of my beatiful flowers.
Have a wonderful week, and stop to smell the flowers!:)

trying to keep my heart open and exposed during such an adjustment period of unfamiliarity and fears. it's a struggle when we're up against anything, really, that changes our lives and identities - our hearts change, too.(Kellierae Roberts) said it best.

These are the feelings I have as myself and my husband embark on a journey of learning with sweet little A.

Learning to help him and learning ourselves.
