Looking ahead...

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...

Enough said.

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!

LOL, had to make the pictures bigger so I could check out the "stick fish".... Was really wondering what it looked like because I have never heard ot that breed.  Too funny, but hey, it's a beauty!  Sounds like everyone had a great time, it's nice to get away from it all.  And isn't coming home the greatest?  : )

There's a quote I have come to adore.......
~As the angler looks back, he thinks less of individual captures and days then the of scenes in which he fished~
I think it's wonderful you took the girls fishing. Memories are priceless.
