Happy Mother's Day

I had the most fantastic mother's day yet. Steven let me sleep late and I woke up to a tv tray with breakfast, coffee, flowers and a book. Then my two boys loaded up in the bed with me to give me my card and hugs and kisses.

Then Steven took the boys and I sat alone ate my breakfast and read my book for about an hour. It was absolutely the best hour I've had in a long time. I guess he has put in quite the brownie points for father's day.

We then headed out to church and then off to see the mother's and grandmother's.

C.A.S.T for Kids

Steven took the boys to a fishing event where they teach children with disabilities how to fish. It was really cool. Steven said when they got in the boat they asked the kids what they wanted to do. If they wanted to fish, they fished. If they wanted to ride in the boat, they rode. If they wanted to drive the boat, they drove.
It rained the whole time but the kids still had a blast.
If anyone is interested, they have this event every year during the first weekend in May.

The "Drug" Plant

Back a couple of months ago, we had a guy who picked our driveway to hide from the cops in and he was unsuccessful and when he realized this he threw his drugs out into the woods in my backyard. Anyways, he came back and apologized and gave me this hanging plant. Some people told me to throw it away-but it was pretty-so I hung it up on the backporch.
Now a couple of weeks ago-we noticed lots of birds around it so we looked in it and we found 6 little bird eggs. So now I tap the side of the pot before I water it-and usually a birdie flies out.
So, who knew our drug plant would become a birds nest?????

But Mom I'm 5 years old!!!

I was washing dishes the other day and Seth pulled up a chair and wanted to watch. He then asks me to let him do it, "Moma I can do it all by myself because I'm 5 years old", so by all means go right ahead. I scooted his chair over and put his hands in and showed him how.
Wow, it sure is hard to watch your baby grow up. And growing up he is and quickly. :(
