Are You Sick of Sun Dogs Yet?
Yesterday we had more sun dogs. It amazes me that we've had so many. Maybe it's just that I'm more aware of looking at them? I don't think so though. I'm pretty aware of the sky and the view most days.
Yesterday morning I could see the ice crystals in the sky - glittery and beautiful. If you look on the deck you can kind of see what I'm talking about - but I could see them in the sky, falling onto the deck. It was very pretty. See our row of hay bales (over our septic line in the yard)? They're almost completely covered now.
The rainbow parts of the sun dogs are so pretty. It is impossible to zoom in on a rainbow, but I tried anyway.
Do you like my little Minion's goggles?
I don't know how they were even staying on his head - haha.
The two year old and I hung out at swim practice today again. The nine year old was doing his best impression of Tarzan. Looks like fun!
They're very smart at the pool. They normally keep the rope swing tied way up high where the kids can't get to it. ;) It was the day of this session of swim lessons, so they got to have some fun.
They also "climbed" to the bottom of the pool using the rescue hook. That's my nine year old at the bottom of the 12 foot section.
Meanwhile, the two year old kept both of us entertained. He ran clear to the other end of the stands and back repeatedly, then slipped into the bathroom to put some toilet paper in one of the toilets. I really was watching him ... but I got an important phone call and thought he was just running the length of the bleachers like he had been all day. We're closed in alone in this area, with no way to get to the water, so he's pretty free to run and play ... well, clearly, not as free as I thought.
I'm a born again believer in my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ the Son of God. I am a very happily married wife and a homeschooling mom of five of the greatest kids in the world. We live in a little mountain town in Wyoming, which we love. I enjoy reading and studying God's Word, homeschooling my treasures from Heaven, sewing and doing all sorts of crafts.

Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow... For babies grow up, we've learned to our sorrow... So quiet down cobwebs, dust go to sleep... I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep!!
