We spent this weekend with my mom at her house. The kids love it when we go to the farm. Life is wonderful at the farm. We did some planting of pumpkin, we are late getting it done but hopefully they will grow by the fall, things flourish at the farm. The kids played crochet with Nanna and I sat in the grass watching them have such a great time.
We had a great BBQ dinner and then went out to the fire pit to roast some marshmallows and make some s'mores. I have to say my mom is an awesome nanna in my book. When the kids spend time with her she makes all things fun, even working in the yard. The kids beam from ear to ear as the hang out with her.
After all the outside fun we brought the kids in for quick baths and then it was pedicure time. Daddy even got in on the pedi's. His feet had to have been on fire after working out in the sun all day on the shop. Daddy has been finishing up Papa's shop to raise funds to bring Sophia home. This is the second weekend he put in a 10 hour day in scorching heat. Daddy loves his kiddos so much, even those he hasn't met yet.
Once upon a time there was a wise man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach before he began his work. One day he was walking along the shore. As he looked down the beach, he saw a human figure moving like a dancer.He smiled to himself to think of someone who would dance to the day. So he began to walk faster to catch up. As he got closer, he saw that it was a young man and the young man wasn't dancing, but instead he was reaching down to the shore, picking up something and very gently throwing it into the ocean. As he got closer he called out, "Good morning! What are you doing?" The young man paused, looked up and replied,"Throwing starfish in the ocean." "I guess I should have asked, why are you throwing starfish in the ocean?" "The sun is up and the tide is going out. And if I don't throw them in they'll die." "But, young man, don't you realize that there are miles and miles of beach and starfish all along it. You can't possibly make a difference!" The young man listened politely. Then bent down, picked up another starfish and threw it into the sea, past the breaking waves and said-"It made a difference for that one."
