I feel like I need some major positivity lately, or maybe just a reminder to focus on the positive, to focus on kindness, so I designed this sweet little shirt for my own kids, as a reminder to be kind. Because kindness always matters. Find it here. xoxo
I am so excited for this upcoming workshop but space is super limited! If you want to come hang out, have some snacks, and make something beautiful, click here to put your name on the list.
Camp drop offs galore for us this weekend (SO MUCH PACKING AND NAME BUBBLING)! Leven is spending the week at Camp Little Notch and Finn is spending TWO WEEKS (omg) at Camp Chingachgook, the first time away for both of them. Meanwhile back at the ranch, Jack is doing his first week of camp at Ndakinna, where Finn spent the past few summers.
Before the big drop offs we spent some time at the track for breakfast and YES I went blueberry picking AGAIN I can’t help myself. I have a lot of kids, they eat a lot. It’s necessary, but I’m pretty sure they’re not going to want another blueberry until next summer after this.
I remember, before I had kids, (you know, when you are a parenting expert) how I would imagine things would be as a family. I would never yell and never lose my temper and would feed them only organic food and we would all sit around singing kumbaya all the time in absolutely blissful familial peace. Okay, I added that kumbaya bit, but you get my drift. I basically had no idea what I was getting into.
I spend most of the weekend between two places, the race track and the blueberry patch, and honestly, it was kind of perfect. Opening Day I fit in a couple hours between camp pick up to watch a few races and then Saturday we brought the whole family over.
Believe it or not, when I started this little mom blog I had two kids. IT’S TRUE! Now I have five kids, a second site (here) and I literally am in disbelief that I have been writing this blog for six years.
