Another week has flown by and I have managed to get so little done...
But its been a good week and a fun week!
As I write this, there is a mob going on outside. I can't actually see the details because its kind of far away and the trees in our back woods are dense with leaves, but I can hear the crows mobbing something, and now the blue jays are chiming in. Just figured out that the "something" is our resident red-shouldered hawk because I heard it call. I don't have a recent photo of our resident guy (or gal-- they look the same except for a difference in size), but here is a picture I took over the winter...
I'm feeling a little indecisive this morning, so I included 2 photos.
In other nature notes around the house, I had this visitor at my honeysuckle:
Again, indecisive... 1st one is better exposure, but 2nd photo shows dragonfly better.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Father's Day! My kids made some art for Dad:
|From my daughter;|
It says: "I look up to you Dad"
|My daughter's current obsession: the Power Puff Girls|
She watches the shows, she draws pages and pages of them,
and creates her own new characters that she names
|My 3 yr old son HAS to do everything my 8 yr old daughter does;|
these are his drawings for Dad
I hope everyone was able to enjoy some outdoor fun! We did a little of this..
And an outdoor photo shoot of my daughter's other current obsession: Littlest Pet Shop toys (LPS)
If we were really meeting for coffee, I'd have to tell you that my son's new favorite word is "Never!"
MOMMY: "It's time to wash your hands."
MOMMY: "Let's clean up your toys."
He has to be the most stubborn 3 year old I've ever met! He also refuses to potty train. We've tried all the recommendations: bribery (lollipops), superhero underwear, books, videos, pull ups (controversial for some), trying to go every half hour, a rewards chart... At this point he is most influenced by his peers, who are all trained, so I think he's just going to decide one day that he doesn't want to be different. But we'll see. I make suggestions to him, without pushing him, because then he'll just dig in his heels. I really should have invested in Pampers and Huggies stock-- I'd be rich!
Well, I've finished my coffee. Its a beautiful day and I have a million things to do; the kids have been dropped off at school and camp, so I now have 4 hours to get things done! Time to get to it!
Have a great day and a great week!
