I haven't been here for nearly a week because my life has been pretty much looking like the above - busy.
I have a hard time sometimes looking at why I should be so thankful for the business instead of feeling guilty for not being the perfect mom.... I am really working hard on changing that.
A wonderful thing happened yesterday - the children ice skated on our pond - in November! So neat.
Earlier in the fall, as I was reading through Tasha Tudor's book Through the Year, I though it odd that she had a picture of children skating for one of the November pictures... perhaps years ago Novembers were cold enough to skate.
I am so very thankful for this pond of ours and thankful for the gift of healthy activity for the children at a time when I am not as available as I would like to be.
