We have gone to the ocean a lot. And I never take my camera because I fully submerge too. Decided I needed to snap an end of the day dip. So glad I did!
He had me post on facebook an announcement to his morning waving folks so they know that he'll be off.
I posted this, and he received hundreds of likes and comments on our town page!
Yesterday was a bottom of the barrel day for several reasons outside my control. Although all I wanted to do is crawl up and wallow, we instead hosted an ice cream social. During that ice cream social, my husband posted on facebook that I could use some encouragement. I was quite surprised to open my facebook after the party. People showed up with words of encouragement and in person in a way that blew me away. My heart has been mended and is now 10 sizes bigger from all the love and support. I went to bed smiling.
My takeaway...Find the people who are more interested in doing right than being right. I'm so thankful for the people in my life that care. I wish I could hug each one of you. Thank you.
I wish I was organized enough to put in one place allllll the classes my kids have gotten to do at Maine 4-H Days over the years. It's been MANY. Many good ones too, as evidenced by my kids remembering and mentioning things they've learned over the years.
Here's a glimpse:
Campsite set up, my husband posing like he's a camper, but don't let him fool you. He likes mattresses, snacks, climate control and movies. He went home (after the ice cream social, of course) and we stayed.
We enjoyed a good ol' country hoedown.
And pretended we were going to sleep. (Spoiler. We didn't.)
Stay tuned for tomorrow, I'll tell you about all the awesome classes they took!
Anna-Kate loved helping me harvest. "Tickle tickle" she said to each one as she tickled the soil from the roots.
Know what he did?
First he closed and locked all the doors and windows.
Then he got her a snack.
Then he read to her every Virginia Lee Burton book that we own. He said this took him a whole hour.
Then he was thirsty and hydrated himself and gave her a drink.
Then he helped her set up his best trucks on the car mat.
Then he read his own book while she played underfoot.
I showed up just as they were cleaning up.
Pretty much the best babysitter ever.
Although I'm not sure he is interested in doing it again anytime soon!
