Well, the girls and I just arrived home a short while ago. The day has gone better than I thought it would. The pics are from our fishing excursion. We didn't catch anything ~ well, not fish anyway. Mai caught herself a stickfish (check pics) and we all had our share of fun with the crawfish! After fishing we came home and went swimming. Very refreshing...and they didn't fight. Something they are really struggling with. Especially lately. Being home with them all summer is something I always want to enjoy, but they can take the enjoyment out of it in a New York minute when they want to. I try to mask my feelings of unhappiness, but they must feel it when I'm down. Perhaps it's their way of saying, "MOOOM! Focus over here!!" And believe me, I do.
After swimming and dinner we went to our local dairy twirl (just what I needed) and then I took them to the playground. Yes, Amanda still enjoys a little playground action. They had fun there. Then, you guessed it, back to the river. Unfortunately, by that time the bats were out.
I DO NOT HANDLE BATS VERY WELL...
Now, we are home. Home...something I need to remember is priceless.
Mr. B will be home in an hour or so. I want to continue to feel hopeful. I don't have much else to say....'cept goodnight!
