This was the only picture I was able to get before my batteries died. Kairi was pretending her headband was a princess crown and put the stars in the middle of her forehead.

Here's some more pictures that Jamie took. Thanks Jamie!

Baby Birds

Baby robins have gotten stuck in our window wells 3 times this summer. It's so sad to see their parent's so worried. They just fly around chirping and there's nothing they can do. And when I retrieve the baby from the window well it's so sweet to see how the parent's are so thrilled.

The second time it happened I let Madrox have a little fun with it. Since the baby couldn't go anywhere, I opened the window and with the screen still in I let him sit and watch the bird. He went crazy over it, being so close but couldn't grab it.
When I got that one out, I found another one on the other side of the house. He was perched on some tumble weeds so I just lifted the whole thing out with him still hanging on.

Been Busy

It's 5 am and I can't sleep. All I can think about is what I need to get finished for my next booth. If I didn't suffer from anxiety so bad it wouldn't bother me so much. This working from home seems to be taking over my life at the moment. I usually try to go back to sleep, but I started thinking about how it's been a while since I updated our website and boy was I right.
From the time I signed up for the first booth, all of my time has gone towards working. Most of the time our house looked like this:

 
It's getting better though. I've been trying to manage my time better and it seems to be working, though I still don't have a lot of time for things like blogging. I'm very grateful to be able to help with the income as well as be home with my kids, and with Kaden starting preschool soon I'm hoping to get more work done with less distractions so I have more time to do fun things. And if anyone has any tips on improving time management I'd love to hear them.

Don't worry it won't look like that forever :)
