Only 22 days until the 3 oldest birds are home for the summer!
Oh...I do love them home...

I miss them while they are at school.
Our nest is quite without them stirring and fussing.

I could not help but be reminded how much they all love me...
Being Mother's day and all...
I have made note of the small acts of "treasures" they do for me each day...

For example...

Leaving a jacket in a heap on the couch...

Or Stinky socks on the floor....
Oh and lets not forget the lovely well that was made at scouts....
And the endless amounts of flip flops...
(there are a lot of flip flops to be had in a family of 7)


As I fluttered around this morning in my oh so lovely apron and pearls
I was grateful to find these small "treasures" tucked about our nest...

Instead of picking them up and putting them all away I left them there...
each time I passed I noted...
Only 22 days left until my little birds are home with me...

Oh yeah... bring it on baby! I can't wait for summer either. I quite often leave their messes for them when they get home but soon it can be an all day event of pick-up-after-yourselfers!

I saw the well at church on wednesday night. I was thinking you could spray paint it and embellish it and....just kidding...
I'm actually glad the kids will be home so they will be there to yell at to pick up their own stuff, rather then me just be mad!

Oh so excited for summer. Really can't wait. I too enjoy having the kids home.

So while looking at your treasures I thought to myself, Kiera sure has clean kids. Where are the PILES of dirty socks? Some days I can't find my couch because of the backpacks, books, jackets and yes sometimes shoes covering it. I even saw vacuum marks. Those don't last long at my house.

21 more days!!!
