I heart walking in the woods

my middle boy and i went out to 
the country today where there used to 
be the most precious covered bridge.

it got knocked down by a large tree that came down
the river after some flooding years ago.

now, there is a wonderful Mexican restaurant
which is attracting locals by the tens and dozens! 
it is important to spend time with 
each child alone...especially 
when they are so close to flying the coop! 
(a little chicken humor...this is my boy who raises chickens)
he is in his junior year.

my boy has his first girlfriend
and she isn't me.

she is younger and they can't actually
go anywhere LOL.
i understand there are conversations 
in the hall at school.
and lots of texting. 

this toy is a Kendama...
my boy is hosting an event 
in which kids come from all 
over to compete in many 
tricks with this Japanese toy. 
he wrote the company and got them
to donate the prizes. 
he is a smart cookie. 

our one kitten is at it's most cute stage!
it has a new home to go to when the time is
right...i'm just snapping away, trying
to savor it's babyhood ;)

thanks for stopping by!

Such a sweet time for kitten AND boy! We have fostered kittens and it's hard to see them go. My almost 19 year old son & his girlfriend were talking marriage the other day & I was thinking how one day I'll have another daughter!
Young love is truly sweet to watch glad your son has a wonderful mother to give him a positive example of womanhood so he can look for all the right qualities when he finally meets the right one...

Look at the blue eyes on that kid! No wonder he has the little "chickies" interested:>) You're right, spending one on one time with them now is so important. They fly away far too soon.

Love the soft kitty, just darling1 What a handsome son and that time with him is so important. We have had students from Japan stay with us before, so I know this little wood toy. LOVE the heart-leaf, special indeed! ;D
