Nature break


Head over to UpTake this morning if you have a chance!


Vacations




Life's been a little busy, so let's take a moment, shall we?

Let's go on a nature walk.



I need to stop and appreciate the moment.

I need to remember the important things.






I need to remember to check the pockets of my boys' pants before washing them.


or be prepared for gross surprises in the washing machine.






I need to remember to look before sitting on the toilet, because little boys don't aim well...
or at all.





I need to remember to force my younger son to change clothes.
Daily.
Because he would live in the same outfit for weeks, if he could.





I need to remember to check the boys' calendars more often,
so that surprise middle school band concerts don't pop up the morning of.






I need to remember to...





make lists.
Because without my lists,
I don't remember anything!




What do you need to remember?

I need to remember to be grateful that I am not a mom to a boy?

LOL You have well rounded kids. Keep feeding them the Ho-Ho's and Ding-Dongs. Gives them the energy to do your nature walks.

Take care and thanks for keeping up on the lighter side of life!

I need to remember that 'it ain't nothing but a thing' most of the time!

Angie's Spot said...

I need to remember to make a "to do" list every Sunday. Apparently, that is the ONLY way I can stay focused each week to maximize my time. Sigh.

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

To make a list.
I have become so unorganized it's pitiful.

dddiva said...

I need to remember that it's okay to sit on my butt and read blogs all day if I feel like it... my kids are older and I've paid my dues. ;-)

Valarie Lea said...

Princess Abigail said...

Gosh your life SO sounds like mine!Especially the toilet episode .... I had a second bathroom built for 'us girls' just cos the boys toilet was always so revolting. I mean, like, really YUK.

I need to remember ... um ... like you, I need to make lists. So that I don't forget ... what I have to remember...

Found your site through American in Norway's site. What a contrast between your nature walks and mine!!! (see my blog to see my nature-at the moment)
I'll be back to see more sunshine :-))

Misty Dawn said...

I am SO with you on the lists! I'm lost without my lists.

I need to remember to take time out... for me.

Linda said...

I need to remember to take more nature walks. Then all those other things I'm supposed to remember don't seem so overwhelming.

Susie said...

That was a great nature hike. I need to remember to slow down. I am running around at 50 million miles and hour. That's when I make mistakes.

DysFUNctional Mom said...

LOVE these pictures and the post!
I need to remember to relax, sometimes. I need to remember to take my vitamins. I need to remember that I can't save the world, animal or human. I need to remember to breathe!

Heather said...

*sigh* I miss the south. I need to remember to do the laundry. I always forget about it until I have no underwear.

Mama Dawg said...

I know you wrote some things in between the pictures, but for the life of me, I don't remember what. I was too fascinated with all your pics. So tranquil. Makes me want to have a picnic and lay back to watch the clouds.

I can't remember anything. I suck that way.

Cristin said...

I remember what it was like to live in the country... I need to remember that I was lucky to have lived there, even for a little while... *sigh*....

Moos said...

Read your blog for a while and decided to start one myself. Hope you like to join mine as well.

texasdaisey said...

I stopped in to say hi. Love your blog, love your post. You are so on the nail. Remember when I had to remember some of those things too. Still need the list though.
Enjoyed it.

Teri said...

*snort*

I need to remember that mommy who gives kid too much to drink after dinner will end up with diaper pee overflow and will have to get up in the middle of the night to change kid and sheets. Good times.

Indy said...

I need to remeber that it isn't snowy and cold everywhere. It was -7 here this morning. Were these pics taken lately? SO jealous.

I have two boys too and my list to remember is a lot like yours. I am so sick of sitting on a wet toilet.

the mama bird diaries said...

Veggie Mom said...

I need to remember why I left Texas so many years ago, because your pixes are making me homesick!

K said...

I love this post. It was a wonderful nature walk.

I'm a mom to a little boy, but he is still pretty young (not quite 2) so it was a fun glimpse into the future.

Just wanted to say Hi to a fellow welcome wagonista!

DiPaola Momma said...
