I've loved having an i-Mac because it made storing and sharing my pictures so easy. Just pop the little card in, and there they were. When I went to browse, in order to add pictures here, just go to the last import and ta-dah, done. Well, it got to where I couldn't do anything and was required to download the new, ummm, something or other that is not Safari. Now, it won't read the card at all unless I turn off the computer and turn it all on again. It doesn't give me an option of my latest import. I find nothing about it easier to manage than before. Consequently, I'm way behind on posting here, so this is going to be a long one! Well, maybe, if I can ever find the pictures.
Ol' Mother Hubbard was in need of a sitter for just the boys, so Bean and Giddy-Up came and we had our boy's night and morning. They always want a fire, so it was hot dogs and ravioli on the fire. Ugh, so hot, but not so they noticed. We had science experiments. Here they are making their own lemonade.
Pap pitched a tent and growled at me for taking his picture. He and the older boys were supposed to sleep outside. Pap did, the boys caved. When he came in for breakfast he teasingly said,
"Good morning girls."
On the day Rae, Rosie and I shopped, Pap had a date with Giddy-Up and Mr. Smiley. After shopping at our house and thrift stores for metal items, they created a sound board to hang outside and play whenever the spirit moves them.
Our sweetest little Rosie so enjoyed being outside and watching all the action. She is the dearest littles bit. Sometimes your kiddo makes you so proud your buttons about pop off. I really had no idea how this fostering would be. Well, at this point, we just have another baby we love. No one on the outside looking in would have one clue that we didn't welcome her into the world as our newborn.
And, at last, what my sweet girls have been pining for all year- The Fairy Ball. Since the boys spent the night, the girls needed their turn. I also needed them to spend the night because they had so much planned, there was no way to do it in an afternoon.
So we began on Friday evening with fairy houses and fairy lanterns.
Me, I smile at how darn cute they are, I feel grateful for a Sidly-girl who shows up, helps and plays her part, I cry because I know this time is fleeting, I love how, right now, this magic is so very real to them.
Whew, I am worn out!
