About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Where the Day takes You

Home school P.E. class. 
We hit the trail today.

   The scent of  Honeysuckle.
   Almost worth my allergies.


   Lesson on Poison Ivy and Ticks.
   Two of the main reasons I avoid the woods.
   I was so glad I tagged along today, though.

   If I bring my camera I can go anywhere.
   No kidding.
   It empowers me.
   Just call me Flash.

   Kids are the best.
   I could take pictures of them all day.
   No fear.
   Living life and not holding back.

   The sound of the water running.  Peaceful.
   I didn't want to return to the noise.

   Little wild strawberries were scattered throughout.
   Lush green with pops of red.
   Hidden treasure.

   A little fairy village, perhaps?

   They begged to stay and play.
   So we did.

   Yes, please.

   Mandy braved the water.
   She never backs down from an adventure.
   She slipped and took quite a tumble but she told me that showed that she had "lived".
   I love the way she thinks as I usually play it safe.

   "Stop opening my phone."

   They do love each other.
   Some of the time.:)

   I stood there and clicked away.
   I laughed while they struck poses, made faces and tickled each other.

   We got our school work done later.

   The weather was just too nice to go inside.

   Fun in the Sun.

   Making scary faces.

You just never know where the day will take you.:)

That looks a wonderful P.E.Class. I can see they all had a great time in the woods. You were so brave Lori. Hope there weren't any ticks! Your pictures really captured the fun and happiness. Loved them all especially Mandy the adventurer barefoot in the stream and Katie's smile always makes me smile too :)

Getting out in nature on a pretty day, to me, is always medicine for the soul! Isn't it fun to take a look around and discover all sorts of things? Glad y'all had such a good time, Lori!

What a wonderful day! I love the smell of honeysuckle. I don't have to go to the woods for poison ivy and ticks....unfortunately we have them right here at home. Mostly in the kudzu patch across the street.
