Step Right Up to Colty’s Emporium

12 days ago, we had a long, fruitful day (how they all should be) with a leadership team offsite meeting.  

 

So, when we got home, it was nice to have some chill time in the driveway play area with the kiddos.  

 

Devon had a nice glass of wine, I was smoking my Friday afternoon stogie.  

 

Devon had asked me to move this huge piece of tree that I cut a few months early that we had been using as a seat for a period of time.  

 

Whelp, upon moving it, I noticed a newt, which is one of Colt’s favorite critters.  I told him to grab his portable critter case so we could put him in there for some observation.  

 

Not more than 10 minutes later, the boys had found about 3 more newts.  

 

And then as luck would have it, we saw this giant caterpillar-like creature.  It was about the size of my index finger and red.  In he went.

 

Then, we found a bull toad that took up my whole palm, he didn’t go in the case, we put him in a bucket.  

 

This all happened in the matter of minutes.  Colty created a whole emporium in the matter of minutes along with Braxton’s help.  

 

You can create something pretty quickly when you focus on it and put your attention on it.  

 

And yes, we let the critters go at dusk, safe and sound.

I Was Shocked and Amused

Two weeks ago, yes, the same weekend Devon was away (I feel like I could write a month’s worth of emails from those couple of days), I was putting Emma to bed.

 

This is usually a wind down time, where I sit with her in a chair in her room, feed her her bottle and listen to something calming.  

 

Well, the boys made their way down.  And man, were they causing a ruckus.  They were going at it as brothers do, but when they came into her room, I simply kicked them out.

 

I would deal with them once she was down.  Well, that wasn’t to be.  Braxton through something at Colt or did some kind of WWE move on him in the middle room, to which Colty began to cry.  

 

Brax then ran into Emma’s room and hid behind her door, with his back to her closet.

 

Tank came in, looked around, didn’t see Brax, but was smart enough to realize that Brax was behind the door.  So, in typical Tank fashion, she ran full speed ahead at the door and drove Braxton back through the close, driving the folding door off its track.  

 

Brax was now in tears and pretty banged up.

 

Poor Emma.  

 

Funny thing was, it didn’t disturb her going to sleep one bit.  

 

She was calm through the chaos.  

 

Once again, so many lessons that I am fortunate enough to learn from them on a daily basis.

Sometimes You Have to Go with the Flow

Two weekends ago, the five of us went to the River not far from our house for a nice swim.

It was glorious.  I had Emma out there on a tube while the boys explored with Suzy.  The water was nice and warm, yet refreshing. 

Well, after an hour or so, we were ready to head back home.  I was laying belly down on the float and decided I would go down the little rapids, the kids would get a kick out of it.

Problem was, I didn’t assess the situation properly.  The water was pretty shallow there, yet rocky.  By the time I realized that I should be sitting on my BE-hind, it was too late.  I attempted to stand to reposition and went flying on a slimy rock.  

Off went a sandal I had on along with the float.  I had to navigate the rocks and rapid on my butt.  Thankfully a few kids grabbed my lone sandal and float once the water calmed.

However, off went my other sandal.  Keep in mind these were an older pair, I just had them on because I didn’t have water shoes with me.

I watched as the other sandal floated down the river, but I also knew that it was within distance for me to retrieve.  So, as Devon sat on the bank with the kids, off I floated, about 300 feet down the river, to get my other sandal.

I went with the flow because the flow wanted to take me.

Where is the flow trying to take you and are you resisting it?

The Great John Lennon Said This

‘Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans’.

Profound.  That line stuck with me after dancing to his Beautiful Boy song with my Mom on our wedding day.

Life is right now.

Not tomorrow, not yesterday.

One day, you will realize that the important stuff is the little stuff.  When you look back and reminisce, you will realize it was all the little moments that were the real magic of life.

Your life is happening to you right now, today…..
