Picture of the Week: Naptime
Small Fry is at the stage now where when he’s tired, he’ll climb up to where I am and snuggle in for a nap. No prodding from me required :). Yesterday, I didn’t even bother moving him from the couch; I just let him slumber there while I worked on a new quilt. But don’t worry – I checked on him often to make sure he didn’t roll off!
For the record, these two pictures were taken at different times during the week.
Enjoy the weekend!

Happy Birthday, Small Fry
Picture of the Week: Happy Birthday Hubs
As I mentioned on Wednesday, today is my hubby’s birthday. The two days of us being the same age are over, and he’s a year ahead of me again. In honor of his birthday, I thought I’d share one of his comics.
As Mom to three boys, I often feel this way! Both in the “quit shooting your brother” way and the “I don’t know anything” (about the way the play) way. Lol!
If you’re interested in reading more comics, click here to read some of the older ones online. You can also buy the book securely online here. Or the other book from Amazon. I’m not sure why he has one book on Amazon and not the other. *shrug*
I hope you all had a wonderful Independence Day! Have a great weekend.

Picture of the Week: Baking Bread
I’ve recently been serving only homemade bread instead of store-bought, and since it wasn’t hot yesterday, I made it bread baking day. I use this recipe from “the mrs” – I tried a few and this one is by far our favorite. I make a few modifications, though. Her recipe calls for honey, and since babies can’t have honey for their first year, I substitute agave nectar so Small Fry can enjoy it. I only own 2 loaf pans, so I cut the recipe in half. And I don’t have a stand mixer, so I do it all by hand. Oh, and she grinds her own flour; I don’t have the ability to do that, so I use half all purpose (I buy it in 25 pound bags) and half whole wheat. Considering all my modifications, I’m sure hers is much better! lol. But it’s still amazing bread.
Anyway, so the picture. When it was time for the kneading process, Munchkin wanted to help. So of course I let him :).
Happy First Day of Summer!
Picture of the Week: Baby Firefighter
This fun riding toy is at our church. We spend a lot of time there, and on this day, Seahawk was pushing Small Fry around the hallways (we were the only ones there – hubby has his office at the church while we’re painting his home office). Small Fry was having so much fun!
As for not having any posts this week, I just couldn’t think of anything, and it didn’t seem worth it to try to come up something mediocre instead of waiting for something good to write about.
Picture of the Week: The Lion Kids
I walk to the store with the kids nearly every day. It’s not the most efficient use of time (or money) as opposed to buying big and freezing, but I don’t like not leaving the house at all on a day, especially as the weather gets nicer. I also don’t like walking without a destination in mind, so this is the system that works for us.
On the edge of the store property, there are two rocks that look just like those in The Lion King, and every time we walk by, the boys ask if they can climb on them. About every third time, I let them. Last night was one such time.
I hope your weekend is full of God’s wonder.
This Moment: Walking
Inspired by Soule Mama
A Friday ritual. A single photograph – no words – that a capture a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, remember, savor.
