More Important Things To Do

There were more important things to do than identifying insects,
Like tasting the sweet and savory goodies from the Farmers Market.
The box WAS full of these awesome, fresh picked juicy strawberries. A pint were eaten before we got home. And that spinach, oh my!
Now, we really can't wait for our garden to flourish!
Product testing is fun, and this one, the Honey Silk Moisturizer, won me over. The best part? It's made just over the hills and dales from here, in Hayward, WI. at B's Flambeau Acres. I love this stuff.

Of course, there is no better way to while away some time, than to spend it at Great Grandma O's house,
checking out the cattle at her neighbors,

counting the healthy calves,
following the Gander Goose just after a down-pour,
doing a balancing act on the fence like his
Dad and I and countless kids of all ages, used to do.
There was 'trust' to gain,
with new-found friends like a red squirrel, Nuthatch and chipmunk.

Come on, I'm your friend.
O.K., even little brothers aren't all bad. Sorry! Just kidding!
Let it rain. Grandma said that as long as it was just rain and no lightening or thunder, we could run in the puddles and play with the umbrellas...YES!!!! Thanks, Grandma!
But then there is still time for more serious stuff, like discipline of another kind while learning Tae Kwon Do....this really is serious stuff.

What a busy day.
We're all tired.
Good thing we slept well and are ready for another day.
There is jam to make and butterflies to catch.
It's still too cold to go in the pool...
Maybe in July.

Thanks for coming by.
Find something positively great about the day, and

Identifying insects is cool, but a day out with the family is EVERYTHING!

I love to follow along the narrative and pictures. Sy is one happy child. I will never forget watching his dad showing how to put the frog (toad) to sleep. Then he got to do it.

Sometimes I miss the grands being small. They are such a joy. I truly enjoy watching a youngun enjoy the simple pleasures of life, like the balancing act.

Love you guys, Great entry as always.
Sherry & Jack

I enjoyed looking at the pictures of your Grandloves and Great Grandma too. The photograph of the Grandloves in the rain reminded me of a young boy that lived with me for a short time. He was a foster child. It was in the summertime. For the better part of a week all it did was rain. He was bored with being indoors all the time. One day I had him change into his swim trunks and sent him outside. Boy did he have fun running in the rain and sliding on the grassy slope in our yard. I had fun, too, watching him having a good time.

The children are so enjoying them selves. Wonderful photos of them & the wildlife that seem to be quite tame. Blessings!
