Friendships...and other heartbreaks, joyfulness and random bits of life

My heart breaks for my child today.
Her best friend is as they say it, 'dumping her' in little subtle ways. No time for her at breaks at school and no time for her after school.
And this is life.
We have season for everything, our lives move like the ocean tides.
Good, bad, in between.
How do we deal with it.

How do we give the right advice at the right moment then know when to say nothing.

My sweet little girl on the edge of being a teen, here is my advice to you.
Move on.
Move forward.
There are so many people in the world who would love being your friend.
You have so much to offer, to give and this is your time, enjoy it.

Carnival Time in Bedford....funday Sunday...

Sunday one of the many churches in our town held their annual carnival and this year we went. The weather was perfect. There were lots of people that we knew, and there were some we had not met before. Lots of kids.

For entertainment there was:

Two different local carriages driven by cute small ponies. A tractor train. About 10 to 12 fun carnival games, bean bag toss; balloon darts; football toss; ring toss; duck pond; with prizes for everyone of every age. A balloon slingshot, face painting.
And lots of food.
Hot dogs,
cotton candy,
everything my diet screams NO too.

Needless to say my kids went and had a fabulous time. Here are some pics to enjoy. They are not shot well, I was having an off day with the camera.
Me, not the camera's fault.

Random thing we do...like cooking...and other stuff

I have been so out of the routine of my non-usual random life. Wait, is that a word? Oh well, every morning I have just said to myself, got to get back to a routine. But end up doing the opposite, today is the day we get back to tcb. (taking care of business)

Here are some latest pics of happenings around the house.. and out of the house.

Laura loves to bake, we attended her open house at her preschool. The ladies pictured are her director and her teacher.
Codi and Robert are doing fantastic at school! I cannot believe how fast she caught up with her missed days and assignments. This week she has an overnight fieldtrip, everyone has school pictures on Thursday and The two mighty Roberts drive to Omaha for a day together on Friday. I believe they are planning a guys day which includes The Great Outdoors, hunting and fishing mega store and lunch. ( I am so happy they are doing a day together). Laura is liking her school more and more, I am so relieved to hear, 'I like school' instead of the opposite. Well, that is me catching up. If you would like to leave a comment, click comment and it just follow the steps. Have a blessed day!
