Lasting Impression

"It's the little things that leave a warm lasting impression." ~Mama Hen 
The past few weeks have been filled with many things that will surely have a lasting impression. First, Little Chick and I have been taking care of my mom every day. She has been to more doctors than I can count and has been through so much. We are "loving" her back to health. During these weeks Little Chick lost her 7th tooth. She could not wait to call Grandma Hen and tell her all about it after she placed the tooth in her little suitcase that she puts under her pillow. She was so excited when her fairy, Oceana Wavey, brought her money and a little fairy. Little Chick has been a little angel to my mom and has been with her to every doctor's appointment. She makes sure she rests and eats. She is a great little nurse. Little Chick bought a new dollie that she named after Grandma Hen with her tooth fairy money. She also always makes quite an impression on the chickens when we go to the farm for our fresh veggies. They flock to her every time. We had fun the other day at the lake with friends spish splashing in the water park! Today she had a fun time with her friends at the ice cream shop learning how to make ice cream. The children made their own flavor to take home. With a heat wave of above 90 degrees for weeks, the ice cream sure will be a cool treat!

Catching Up

"Cherish each and every moment and savor the happy feelings they leave with you. Life has a way of cruising by." ~Mama Hen
The past few weeks have been filled with love, laughter, tears and everything in between. My mom has been ill and I am doing my best to take care of her through this difficult time. Before this, Little Chick had some adventures we want to capture here. First, I was so happy to be invited to two high school graduations from my fourth grade students long ago. I was so proud to see them accomplish their goals and to hear them tell me about the universities they will be attending. Little Chick loved getting dressed up (as in the picture above) and seeing my students graduate. She also had fun going to the beach often, visiting Mystic Aquarium, taking a ride on a camel at the zoo, and spending time with family. Little Chick had a blast with her Beluga buddy. He followed her around as she strolled her dolly in front of the glass. Life is so precious!
