The Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week


Sweet Boy#1 saved up his money for months and spent additional months working for $5 an hour around the house so that he could buy a small wooden sailboat off of craigslist. Finally the big launch day arrived. The pond is too small to use the sails, but that didn’t keep our oldest from enjoying his new acquisition.







He worked so hard for this little boat. It was wonderful to see him finally getting to captain his craft about the pond!


I promise you a crazed animal, a concussion, and a kiss in every single're welcome!

    Ah, this makes me homesick for Alaska. We had a home on a small lake. What fun the kids had in that lake. Wonderful that your son is getting out in the boat he saved up for. Good deal.

    The boys have such a blast in this little pond. Catching snakes and giant goldfish, pretending to be water dragons. It is kid heaven.
