We had a pretty mellow weekend. Lots of playing, reading, movie watching, eating, and family love. Wishing a good start to a new week and month!


A friend of ours has crazy amounts of blackberry bushes on her property. They are in big clumps so you have to fight your way into the middle and against some thorns but then you discover the berries. The boys ate what we picked that day, the crop was not overly abundant, but we had fun.

boys at play

The lure of trucks and water for young boys. It was a glorious Sunday afternoon and these two spent over an hour busy with their work of play. Harkin was just delighted with all of the trucks while Landon was experimenting with our recycle and water. How such simple things can make for some beautiful moments. Mama just watched, listened and took all these memories in.

season's beginning

Landon had his first games this past weekend. It was full of action and excitement. he loves playing so and is always so excited to go to practice and games.

So we are headed into a another soccer season. Landon's last about 6 weeks with practices twice a week and games on Saturday. 

William will play with the school again and right now he has 18 games on the schedule. It is going to be a very busy time, driving from place to place every afternoon, and then this Mama will breathe a sigh of relief.
I love watching them play and it is so good for them. I just don't love the late nights and driving to all the different towns.

passing time at the water

William was attending a photography seminar about an hour away from us. So the younger boys and I found a small beach to hang out and pass the time. It was just us, so it was nice and quiet and I could just relax and watch the boys. They played by themselves for a bit and then ventured together out into the water. Landon had a very good eye on his little brother. He loves to be in charge of him. They are very sweet with one another. The day passed quickly and before we knew it we had to leave and go get William.

Holding onto summer just a little bit longer.

golf finale

The boys had golf instruction all summer long. Last week was the last day. It was made special because they could take their family out onto the golf course with them while they played a few holes. It was fun to watch the boys and Harkin thought it was great to sit in the cart and drive it with Mama. Afterwards there was a BBQ and the boys received goodie bags full of fun stuff.

It really is such a great program that this golf course runs. The boys look forward to it every week.

Now they are ready to take on Daddy they say.
