Life with Family...& Five Places I've Been This Week

This week, Melody encouraged us to spend time with our family as her prompt at Wrapped Emotions....

I love my job. There are so many wonderful things about what I do in my work...and it's a lot of work, let me tell you, but it's very rewarding. I do work a lot of evening and weekend hours, but right now, I'm so lucky that my children are young and I can spend time with them during other parts of the day. Mornings are often more flexible, and this week I was able to spend a lot of time with my little ones especially. (My biggest one is in Kindergarten so he goes to school for part of the day.)

I have one day off each week, Tuesday. While one day off is not exactly enough (imho), it is sometimes very nice to have a day in the middle of the week to spend with my kids!

This week, my parents came to hang out and the kids made a big pile of leaves. Here are some of the pics of that day...

It is truly a blessing to be able to share these moments with my kids. I am such a lucky mama!!!!

Ima lovin' me some fall leaves! :)

It has been so fabulous to read that everyone has embraced and enjoyed their families this week. But then, I know that you and everyone do that on a regular basis. Coming here always provides me a blessing and a smile. Thanks.

Hello, Thank you for stopping by. I enjoyed coming here for a visit as well. I'll place you on my side bar and visit again. Enjoy your evening.

You are a lucky Mum! What lovely boys - and playing in the leaves is such great fun! I take my nieces along to the Botanical Gardens in Edinburgh at this time of year and we scuff up big clouds of leaves and feed the bold wee squirrels. Good times!

Great Photos! And I would agree, it is nice to have a day in the middle of the week to spend with the kids. This is why I enjoy school breaks and vacations so much!

Stacy said...

Oh, that looks so fun! That is so great that you can spend time during the day with the kids, but it does sound like you are plenty busy!

I read that GAP article, too, so sickening that those things are still happening today. :(
