Country Kids

This week was a busy one for us and it rained often, but we still had time for art and water fun - a great combination in my daughter's book!

Here the Princess is thrilled to finally be using her new raincoat!
One afternoon it was raining rather hard so we stayed indoors painting with watercolors :)
And living in the tropics guarantees a little bit of everything - everyday! 
Here she is splashing into a pool - her fav place to be on a daily basis.
All in all a great week for my girly girl!

Wordless Wednesday - Sleeping buddies

The Gallery: Hands

This photo is 4 years old - my Princess (the one with the clam diggers and white t-shirt) was just 3 then. She has always had a sweet tooth and here she is - at a family reunion - with her cousins not even aware that I'm taking a photo, she's so busy trying to get the spicy candy out of the container.
And here she is eating away! Oh how I love those sweet, chubby hands - and the rest of her! Even though she is now 7 her little hands continue to feel small when I'm holding them :)

Six Word Saturday

A Beautiful -Albeit - Deceivingly Blue sky

Summer is in full swing here in the tropics - yikes! - and that means the rainy season as well.
Don't get me wrong, the upside of our summers are the beautiful rainstorms that somewhat give us some respite from the daily heat - in spite of the humidity they bring - but the point of today's entry is that no matter how blue the sky might seem at any given time it can change in minutes and turn black and stormy - just the way I like it!!! :)

Sunday Scribblings # 324 - Parent

A beautiful word if taken seriously, a great word if it’s honored by the person doing the parenting, a fantastic word if you really truly try to be the best parent on earth.
I’ve probably failed my Princess in the past and there will probably be more in the future, however, I can honestly say that everyday I wake up and ask God to help me be the best mother – PARENT – I can possibly be!
Yes, trying to be the best means being less: self-centered, selfish, preoccupied with ones wants – often mislabeled as needs!
Yes, it is hard work, a lot of work – especially for a single PARENT but lets remember that we were the ones who brought our children into this world and we must give them a happy childhood in order for them to be happy adults and future good PARENTS.
Happy Fathers Day to those who celebrate the day – Dads and single Moms.

6 Word Sunday

Happy Father's Day my Sweet Love!

After almost 7 years of being a single Mom and of my Princess not having a Father figure, Mr. Wonderful finally came into our lives last year and has been doing a great job of being there for us. I look forward to many more years of happiness!
