My walking partners this week…and…

I so love this picture. Rachel and Abby walked with me this week on the 5K fitness trail in Aitkin. We aren’t fast by any means but we are out there moving our butts and I’m out there enjoying their company. I feel so honored that these girls want to be with me. Love our rosy cheeks, this is about the 1/2 point.

We stopped by the Healing Garden at our local hospital and I had to get pictures of the girls. Isn’t Abby a doll?

And “my” Rachel. I love this girl (really both lots and lots).

Our walk didn’t happen tonight, it’s been raining…almost 4” since yesterday. Our area is starting to flood and the Mississippi is close to flood stage. Also means there’s no way I’m planting my garden this weekend. Oh well, so be it.

Have to share this picture too. This is “my” Joss. She’s my one and only daycare kid during the school year which means we have lots of time to just do what we want. Like dancing, playing, painting and so much more.

                                     I so love her curls. :)

The weekend is almost here and only 3 days left of school. The bus has been interesting and a challenge. The kids have more ants in their pants and loud is an understatement. As much as I love driving bus, I think I’m ready for summer vacation and my 4-7 kids a day. Planning some field trips, buying some new toys and time to just enjoy the sunshine and sleeping in a full two hours longer.

Have an awesome Friday. 3 days off for most of us. I’m not sure what is planned except garage saling on Saturday, some shoveling of pearock, planting a couple small plants I got from my bus kids and grocery shopping.

Take care my friends. Blessings!!

So many pretty flowers! I'd have so much fun with those. For some reason, my flowers are a little late this year, while everything else seems early.

Very cute curls!! It's fun how you enjoy your daycare kiddies. I love it. I hope you have a fabulous Memorial Day weekend! Garage sailing sounds very fun... maybe I'll put that on my agenda too!

God bless...

You guys look great together! Your face looks so thin in that first pic. Love the flowers! Hope you don't get flooding at your house!

I love the photos, Julie. They all look like they are having the time of their lives. I'm sorry you didn't get to plant your garden. Maybe it will stop raining soon. I hope there is non flooding. I know how much damage that can do. Take care of yourself and enjoy those kids while you have them. Hugs, Karen.
