I can do that.


 “Motherhood is near to divinity.  
It is the highest, holiest service to be assumed by mankind.
 It places her who honors its holy calling and service next to the angels.” 
I believe that.
Sometimes I am discouraged.
Sometimes tired and frusterated as a mother and blogger.
But, I remember who I am, and those unseen angels standing next to me
 and then I keep going.   
I will keep fighting, I will keep working,
I will not let others stop me or tell me what I am doing is silly
or of no consenquence.
 I better believe it becuase noses need to be wiped,
meals prepared, clothes washed, and hearts to cheer, 
and I can do that, because I am a strong capable mother and woman.
And that is kind of a big deal.

Spring Break '14 - The End

We pulled into Fox Hill late last night.  It's so good to be home.
I bathed Lottie {who was half asleep} while the children ate
 bowls of cheerios in the kitchen. 

Coming home from a fun vacation really stinks.
Loads of mail, unanswered e-mails, and work. 
Also, I have no food in the house 
for the Little Nie's lunches tomorrow. 
Oh good grief!!  I should have planned this out better.
I was just so excited to leave, I guess.

Spring Break '14 Day 2


It's Friday, whaooooo.
Today was spent at the beach again.  
I however stayed inside the beach house 
with Lottie who has broken out with a rash.  
Her face looks like a red adorable bulldog.  "Spotty Lottie".
It's actually been pretty horrible. Poor baby girl.
 
I have tried to keep her inside all day away from the sun.
She wants to go outside so bad and I try and distract her with games, 
coloring, books, and blocks.
Tonight our cute friends Craig and Mary invited us over for dinner and swimming.
The children LOVED every minute of it.  
We roasted marshmallows, laughed at our pets, and ate Mary's banana cake.
Mary has the best house.  Mary is also a gracious host.
Other words that describe Mary are:
practical, efficient, happy and calm.
Later that evening, we pulled back to the beach house
 and put tired children to bed.
I am praying that Lottie will be better in the morning.
Having a sick child is so heart-wrenching.
Happy Weekend!

 I really appreciate such wonderful friends-most of whom
I do not know- who love and support me.
It means a lot.
XOXO
