I searched long and hard through my thousands of pictures to find pictures for this weeks Thursday Challenge theme. Interestingly enough, I don’t have many where the sky is the star. I find this little fact interesting because well, I LOVE looking at the sky. I see it, really see it every day. I turn my head towards the heavens and stare at the sky so I wonder why I haven’t used my camera to capture more of it.

Come on, participate in Wordless Wednesday.
During my son’s 2nd year, my niece came to spend some time with me in the summer. I loved having her here and my son had a playmate. She is very loving, sensitive, sweet and affectionate, a real lovely addition to our small family for a few weeks in the year. It was nice having a girl to spoil too. Not that I could do much with her financially but I took her to lots of farms, parks, we went to the library a lot. We read together or she read to us. I brushed her hair after she showered and just enjoyed making her summer as special as I could in hopes that she would want to come back. I remember spending summers with my cousin Carol and her daughters. It made me feel so grown up to visit away from home for so long and I usually got to do things that I wouldn’t normally do at home.
God saw an Angel standing there! And He gave you all his love to share amongst the rest of us. His greatness from above.
My son was 3 months shy of 1 year old in this picture. It was the end of March in 2004 and it was still quite cold out. I was amazed that I was a stay at home mom and loving that he was becoming more fun. This was his first park. It is only about 10 minutes from my house and only had a swing and a small slide but I loved letting him experience it.
It thought he was the cutest baby I ever saw with his big, round cheeks and big brown eyes. I am sure that under the microscope you would be able to see a permanant kiss mark on his forehead and cheeks because I STILL (5 years later) can’t stop kissin him.
Join the hunt. To participate come here.
|The Spider’s Web|
The spider, dropping down from twig, Unfolds a plan of her devising, A thin premeditated rig To use in rising. And all that journey down through space, In cool descent and loyal hearted, She spins a ladder to the place From where she started. Thus I, gone forth as spiders do In spider’s web a truth discerning, Attach one silken thread to you For my returning. — E. B. White
My Little Clown, This picture was taken on Daddy’s birthday. You would be 1 in 2 months. You were in a sticking your tongue out stage and I thought it was a riot. I used to stick your hair up in a semi mohawk and snap pictures of you as if I were getting paid for it. In this picture you were crawling under the table and I lied down on my belly and snapped about 100 pictures. This was my favorite of the day.
Down at the station early in the morning, See the little Puffer Bellies all in a row. See the engine driver pull the little handle, Chug, chug, toot, toot, Off they go.
This was a big blow up train that my sister got him for his 1st birthday. It was a ball pit too. I wish I had kept if longer than I did. We got rid of it probably around the time that my son would have really gotten much joy out of it. It took up a lot of dining room area. Just before my daughter was born I took it down to make room for the pack and play and bassinet. I really wish I had held onto it and put it up the next year. Handsome spent so much time crawling through the train or just sitting and looking through his picture books.
My husband got this swing for me when I was pregnant. I spent so many days of my maternity swinging away and waiting for the baby to come. After he came I sat many hours with him outside, talking with him and just trying to form a bond that would never be broken. The swing is in need of repair but I will never forget the many hours that I sat swinging with my kids or just pushing them while they sat.
Head on over to Spun With Tears to play along with the Thursday Challenge.

I love watching my son and my husband play in the water. My son goes to the beach with me often but there is something about spending time with dad. They share a bond like no one else.
