Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

Babysitting again........................

It has been a couple of weeks now, Brittany came back to live in Traverse City. A friend of Alex, I am happy to help out. So here I am till school opens again watching Ryland and Brodie. Great kids, and quiet woo hoo. Brittany is working her butt off to be a nurse assistant but I bet she wont stop there. Anyway apparently this town is lacking in day care. One day she called 35 and had no luck. So here I am again watching kids.

Now Gabby is living with us again, it's like old times. She was living here when I watched Ryland when she was a baby. Ryland does not remember. So that means that Cooper is here and is the same age as Brody. That works sort of well. They get along. Thing is keeping them "entertained".......Ryland likes Reina who has been hanging out a bit here. When Laura works Reina has wanted to stay here instead of at home. In fact she just spent 3 days here.
We have done stuff, and went for ice cream and today we went to the park. Brodie and Ryland getting their exercize.

We took them to the playground on Silver Lake where we used to take Tristen. They played for awhile and then we went for a walk. Off we go......

It was a lovely breezy day and sunny. This is Brody being shy.

Boy am I out of shape. Even with it being coolish today I was huffing and puffing. It has either been too hot or raining so we have not been out walking as we usually have. It will take awhile to get back in shape and then it will be winter. This next picture looks like they are all in trouble but thats not the case haha. That's Gabby watching over the flock.

Maybe when school starts I can get out more when it's cooler. I am still needing to catch up on the garden. Pretty soon we will be raking leaves.

When we walked back they played at the park again for quite awhile and after that we went for ice cream. A good days work I think.

I have not been blogging or visiting regularly with all that is going on here. I did go back and read the last post about 'home' though. That is amazing country and I love that solstice is celebrated there like it is in Stonehenge. That statue of Arthur is an amazing piece of artwork~almost haunting.

I am not surprised you are babysitting again. LOL. I know that you are a soft touch with a heart for kids. You are a good soul!!! I am glad the kids are quiet kids though-well behaved and happy. It makes it a lot easier to take care of kids when they are quiet.

Hope you have a blessed, peaceful week. xo Diana
