March Inn

Why"March Inn?" March Inn was the name of that magic place where I spent my summers growing up. I have alluded to this place before, and I probably will again. March Inn is no longer standing. The waters of Katrina rendered it unlivable so my children will never know that "March Inn." That makes me sad. In fact it brings me to tears whenever I think about it. I want my children to have their own "March Inn," and I want to capture our lives as they are growing and changing. I invite you to "march inn" to our lives. My hope is that you will catch glimpses of the real world. You will see our creations. You will see our chaos. You will see our affection. You will also see our frustrations, fears, and disappointments. Enjoy your march!

Real Construction

Apparently my oldest son aspires to be real construction worker, and according to him real construction workers take off their shirts. Today was one of those magical, unseasonably warm and sunny days. I relish days like this... It lightens the mood and refreshes the spirit. I got the housework I set out to accomplish completed, and my boys lived outside. To be exact they lived outside in the mud. Walker might have ruined yet another white turtleneck. Stephen probably would have ruined his as well had he not decided he was hot and taken it off like a real construction worker. In my eyes, it is completely worth it for my boys to get to play outside in the dead of winter.

We had a picnic...

They played some more...
Betsy loved swinging...

The babies napped. I saw my two clients. We walked to the elementary school to pick big sister up from Bible Club. We played on the playground there. I completed a few more chores, helped gather 100 items for the 100th Day of School celebration, threw supper together, and listened to MFS read. Frank and I went to our first small group of the New Year. I continued to wrap my head around having 30 people for dinner on Friday. I toted boxes to the street ~ attempted to organize my sewing and fabric. I made a vow to buy NO new fabric until I have used what I just put away. Maybe I can get to my machine on Saturday!

All in all a GREAT day! How about you?
