MOMASTERY. She turned 36 the day before I turned 37. She stated in a post, "You know, people talk a lot about how they don’t want to get older. I could not agree less. Teens- nightmare. Twenties- terrifying. Early thirties- still cared too much what people thought of me. Now…36. I am telling you- I am just starting to relax into life. I am starting to feel comfortable in my own skin. I LOVE getting older. I feel a little less afraid each year. " I ECHO ECHO ECHO!!!
Monday we had some extra kiddos here all day. They were PERFECT!!!!! I could watch kids that are so well behaved everyday. I loved that Ashlynn got to play with little kids--something she loves to do. I miss having little kids around. I love having big kids, SOOOOOO much easier. But still it's nice when Ashlynn gets to build forts, make sand castles, make messes, build lego towers and have picnics in the basement with kids who WANT to do this and think it's fun (not just her older siblings who are being made to as part of their weekly job) :)
ST. PADDY'S PARADE
We had never gone downtown to the parade. This year, due to the outstanding weather, we decided to try it out. IT WAS VERY LONG. it was fun though, something to do, and the kids got tons of necklaces. They were even passing out bacon. I thought that was NASTY, but my boys thought it was AWESOME!!!
If the weather is good we will definitely go again.
We LOVE having fires. Always a highlight. The other kids had left to the front yard to play basketball. These are our 2 pyromaniacs.
I will do part 2 when I find my camera. I have looked everywhere with no success. This is a scary thing for me. Wish me some LUCK.
