My Mother’s Day weekend has been lovely. . .Saturday the children and I spent the morning doing whatever we wanted. Tony was at a thing at church with his mom and dad, so the kiddos and I watched the kittens play.
And this is what they were doing. . .no high tech toys for the kitties OR the kids. Potted plants and leftover grass palettes will do just fine. The children were jumping on it to see who could stay on the longest. And exactly how much racket their mother could stand.
She has turned out to be the most photogenic of the three as well. Anytime I point the camera at Buttercup–she takes off. Poppy can be caught on occasion, but Penny actually seems to POSE for the camera. She is also the most feisty, so maybe she’s DARING me to take her picture.
At 11:00 the kids went to my yoga instructor’s first Kid’s Yoga class. Have I told you how much I LOVE my yoga instructor? Well. . .I do. She’s just wonderful. And she prays during yoga–which reminds me every time that I am in the exact right place. The kiddos loved it. Victoria can do a perfect plow with absolutely NO hesitation or assistance from her hands. It took her about half a heartbeat to get into this position. Thad, on the other hand, is the one that did the bow pose like a pro. Either way, they can both, literally, bend over backwards. And they both want to go again.
We then ate a leisurely lunch, perused an antique store Victoria and I have wanted to visit, and walked the Magnolia Stroll–a new crushed clay walkway down the “main drag” of Magnolia. It was a perfect temperature and a perfect morning.
I was awakened today by some toast and a bowl of Corn Chex in bed–a lovely necklace that Victoria made for me, and flowers picked just this morning by Thad. Unfortunately, Tony got what I had a couple of weeks ago, so when the tire was flat after church, Jennifer volunteered Greg to change it for me. It was a good thing that he was already wearing black pants. I am perfectly capable of changing a tire, but a white skirt and pastel pink blouse are hardly tire-changing apparel. I’m just sayin’. And I’m also sayin’, “Thank you, Greg!!!!!”
As our Daddy was not with us, we didn’t go out to eat, but we DID grab some chicken and head home (very slowly on our donut tire) for lunch and a nap.
So. . .it was a lovely weekend. Summer is knocking on our door, and we are ready to go.
