Going Places with Little Bird


Springtime is always busy and this one has been no exception.  Each day is exponentially busier than the previous.  Mix all that with post pregnancy hormones and it ain’t such a pretty thing.  But I wake each day and tell myself to be the best I can and hopefully at the end of the day it measures to be good enough.

We added another name to the high school graduate list.  She made us proud being the new kid at school and still making the most of her senior year.  She works at the local ice cream stand and we love to go and harass her there.

Baby Maggie is no longer a baby!

My husband has been traveling, in preparation for the big one he is leaving for soon :(

While he was here we took the baby and escaped to Maine.  It was rainy and gray which turned out to be okay (do I sound like Pollyanna?).  Hadley is here from Texas and played mother to her siblings.  She even made pizza from scratch while having a dance party to the Grease soundtrack in the kitchen- so I hear from the littles. Hadley home + dance music = great fun.


We stopped in Arundel, a special place and Sawyer’s middle name.  It’s funny to me that as a family we have been all over the world but little Sawyer has only been here in New England.  His memories will be so different than that of his brothers and sisters. 


I hope you’re enjoying the onset of summer.  We are calling it the summer of 2o picnics as we made a list of fun places to have our lunch.  Have you got some fun stuff planned? I want to hear about it!

Sawyer is a cutie!

I like your summer's name and might suggest it to my family. We have several short trips planned and "Summer of 20 Picnics" sounds better than taking a break from the car while traveling. I don't think we will have 20, but that sounds like a great goal.

The baby is oh so precious, my friend! I know you are enjoying this little bundle of joy. Congrats to Maggie...she is a beautiful young lady! Picnics sound like fun but we're in Florida right now and it's cooler inside! Happy June to you!

Picnics sound fun! I'm afraid I'm too wimpy to enjoy picnicking in the heat here but I would imagine New England would be much cooler! After all, Laurie and the March sisters were always out and about! Thank you for sharing a picture of your new sweet baby and of your newest graduate! Congratulations!

The picture of your little one is so cute and your big one is very lovely. I am the oldest of nine children . I loved it. There were many babies for me to treasure.
Smiles, Dottie

I have been re-visiting some of my old blog posts and the comments and read again where you had prayed for my family and other encouraging comments and I just wanted to let you know how much that meant to me then and now. I've been praying for you and yours as you begin this new journey with a baby and amazing adult children and your husband called away. Have a blessed day!
