Life lessons


Ryan has made friends with the caterpillars at the lake.  We have a bunch of them crawling around looking for yummy leaves.  Occasionally, they get lost and climb up onto our porch. He loves enticing them onto a stick and moving them back to one of the surrounding trees.   When he is finished he throws his hands up in the air and exclaims "I'm a hero".   Right you are... buddy.  I'm sure the caterpillar appreciated the assistance.   We can learn a lot from kids sometimes. 

Hugs to you all..

All the Good Things


One of my favorite things about summer is watermelon.   Who wouldn't want to steal a slice?  I came up with this idea for a family member with a summer birthday.   I think they got a laugh out of the card. I wrote inside that "I hope their birthday was a picnic".
