Sunny June

Sunny fun filled days with family and visitors - that is how this June has shaped up for our family. We have been enjoying the taste of summer we are cramming into this month off of school. With trips to California and Utah and Idaho, cousins and friends staying over with us as they travel on their vacations, and fun times with friends and neighbors there has been little time to write it all down. It is good to be busy in such wonderful ways.

I was holding Noble tonight as he fell asleep in my arms and felt that mother love rush through me. You know the kind where you just want to squish the little one but don't because they are so little so you grit your teeth instead? Yeah that. It was my fourth grit of the night (I had already put the other 3 down) but it still seems one too few. I suppose it always will now.

I have started so many posts these last few days only to be interrupted by motherhood. :) And alas the little son has woken for his midnight snack. Still I will post because if I don't I may never finish a post. Such is the nature of this most important calling of love.

What lovely thoughts to read on a Sunday morning. I love the overwhelming love rush you receive from children!

Sweet post. I still feel that rush of love, as a grandma, even when the little ones are not in my arms:)

Every night before I go to bed I check all of the kids and make sure they are covered, etc... I love their peaceful, sleeping faces. I get that "motherly love" feeling so strong every time; at times I feel like I could burst. Motherhood is a wonderful thing.

What an adorable family you have. I often want to squish my children too with so much love.
