Vacation Blues

By the time you get home from vacation, you need another vacation. Moms, you know what I mean. Even if it was a wonderfully relaxing time, the hauling stuff and navigating sibling rivalry wears you down. If the security lines at the airport or seats the size of a flotation device aren't enough, the sheer number of times you have to find a bathroom for an "emergency" or the marker that goes MIA mid-flight will do you in.

On our trip we attended a family reunion and visited grandparents and great-grandparents. You'll be sure to hear more about this in the days ahead. We also spent a lot of time just hanging out around the pool. Lesson learned: kids still like the little things of life.

It's going to take me a few days to recover from our delightful vacation. I'll be working on some fun new posts for a new month. Happy July!

The program is based on the classic books of Walter Farley an…

Mom Spot: Progressive Pioneer

Here is another blog I've come across in recent weeks. She has gorgeous pictures and her post yesterday was truly fantastic.

"Maine is pretty rainy in the spring.  And I lived in Oregon for awhile and it defines rainy.  So, a little rain rarely puts me in a gray mood.  In fact, this rainy, rainy spring we've been having here in Utah has actually made me feel quite cheerful!  Each rainy day has felt like something of a celebration."

Mom Spot: Faith

Keep the faith today, even if your mood tells you otherwise.
