Morning! I'm just going to dive right into the week without a proper intro.
I saw not one, but two capitol city skylines this day as I dropped S off at college...
These two can be such good friends, but more often they are fighting. This was a friends week.
Grammy took the little guys to a talk on (and hunt for!) dragonflies.
I came in from the porch after reading my bible and found this little guy, the only one up, quietly reading, snuggled in a blanket he'd gotten himself.
The kids came with me to my monthly "support" group meeting. After, they went to our social worker's office and she showed them pictures and gave them cookies.
We said no to taking a respite for a night, but before we said no we had to hear her heart-breaking story of untold sexual abuse and abandonment. This stuff is hard.
R was away for two days, so the littles got lots of "little" time together, enjoying some fresh-from-the-library books.
Some friends just bought a new house and are scrambling to do some work on it before they move in. We did a family service day and went to help them. It was so wonderful to just show up and put in some time instead of having it be our project. We've been in their shoes and I remember what a lifeline each hour of help and meal donated were.
