These Ten Days

These 10 Days are super exciting and busy at our house. Chickee turns 16 in the next week. Chief graduates from 8th grade in the next week. Tom has a business trip for a few days at some point. There is an end of the year volleyball party, a swim party (brrr), two graduation parties. Chickee's boyfriend graduates from high school. There is a Sweet 16 party. A driver's license to be tested for. A mother/son breakfast at school,

Here's a random cat photo for your entertainment. Our cats will only drink water out of a faucet. Here is Minnie waiting for me to turn on the tub for her.

I'll try to keep up my posting schedule but it's a little hectic around here. Luckily the busy-ness is all fun and happy Blessings.

I have a portable project I need to start so that I can take it with me wherever I go.

My friend has a special small fountain for her cats to always have flowing water to drink from

Funny picture :-) Around here, I have to refill the water bowls twice or 3 times a day for our cats. And even then, they sometimes rather drink outside from rain that stood for days..!

I thought mothering would become simpler as the children got older but discovered I was mistaken. Around the same ages as you discuss here, life seemed to get incredibly hectic with suddenly more running around to do. I've heard it said that "teenagers are like two year olds except bigger than you" and I think that's what happens when they reach that "almost adulthood" age. They go through so many rites of passage around this time. I hope you can find some crochet time amidst all the activity!

Thanks JodieBodie, I'm beginning to agree! I am driving them around like crazy. Still, time is short and lots of bonding and conversation happens in the car.
