On A Bug Safari!

We couldn’t find many BUGS!  I guess it was too wet and early!

“Wook, wook, I found something!”  He called them all over….to look at a plant!

Easter bunny left tracks and carrots from the back door to the living room where Zach’s treats were hidden!  What fun!

Spring Break!

I am enjoying my time with my little guy this week.  However, it would be even better if I could spend it with my big guy.  It is kind of discouraging that he couldn’t take at least a day or so off this week.  Oh well, life goes on. 

Zach and I are staying busy.  We’ve done some shopping, housework, and some yard work. He’s been very happy to get to just stay home and play in the backyard.  I’ve enjoyed watching him swing, ride his tractor, and dig in the dirt.  We’ve eaten out on his little picnic table a few times.  It was so rewarding to hear him say, “Mom, you’re my best friend.” 

I’m going to do a little shopping tomorrow and hopefully take a day to do something Zach wants to do.  Sometimes it is so hard to stop when there seems like more than I can do alone to keep things going around here……lawn work, windows, baseboards, closets, ……..

I guess when life throws lemons at you, you have to make lemonade.  :)  That’s what Zach wants to do……make a lemonade stand like Max and Ruby.

DSI

spring 2011 016

Zach has been wanting a DSI for a few months….so his dad got him one a few weeks ago.  I can’t believe how fast he is growing up.  Peer pressure has just become an issue. :o)
