In Honor of Friendship

I just finished a wonderful visit with my best friend. She is the one person who knows me the best. Which means she should hate me. That’s what makes friendship beautiful though, your closest friends know you and still like you. Anyone that know us knows we are soul mates only in that platonic way (insert stupid comments).
We met in high school my first day of my sophomore year at a new school. We spent the year doing all our group projects together.
We were one of those friendships that took off slowly. We thought the other was cool but didn’t do anything together. When we had a few of the same classes together our senior year our friendship went epic. It was like we were sisters. Despite the different directions our lives have taken us we have been that way ever since. My DBFF, HAPPY FRIENDSHIP DAY!!! I wish everyone was as lucky as me.

Waiting…

Waiting for rain to help my garden grow. Waiting for the breeze to bring its cooling flow. Waiting for my kids to see that doing chores is good for thee. Waiting for the great owl that lives in our tree. Waiting for tomatoes, ripe. Waiting for my children to stop the gripe. So here I sit, for a friend, I wait. But I fear for fun summer plans its too late.

The Musical Extravoganza of Dreaming Hats Farm

We enjoyed spending a lot of time reading this summer. As a result we spent a lot of time at the library. My kids all signed up for the Summer Reading Program “Dream Big — Read!” All my kiddos read the required amount(20 books)and exceeded the goal at 26 books for my DD and 44 for my 3DS. The library as a prize brought in Thad Beach, a talented musician, who has a way with kids. The songs were warm and inviting for the kids and really shook the shyness out the door. I would recommend seeing any of his shows if you are in Kansas and see him on the marquee. (I apologize for the pics cell phone photography at its best.)
