Today we made bird nests. When we arrived home from Europe there was a bird's nest, with five baby birds, in the rafters of our carport. We watched the birds, would run to the window when we'd hear them chirping for food and got the ladder out to peek in on them every day or so. We also got to watch the Cliff Swallows that built nests on the sides of the building at Brian's college. Eason was amazed at the construction (they make almost little caves with mud). So we decided to build our own, using red play dough and what ever we could find in our backyard. Eason and Eliot set out on a quest and came back with lots of goods for nest building. Eason was particularly excited to find a bit of orange yarn. The nest in the carport was cushioned with yarn and Eason was determined to find some for his nest. Much to my surprise he found a little piece in the backyard.

On a mommy note. I FINALLY went to a yoga class today. I had all I could take and huffed out of the house for some yoga. On my walk down I thought "well this will be nice, but I'm sure I'll return home and still be peeved." But, after an hour and a half of yoga, I was a new woman. Two other frazzled moms of little ones were my classmates and the instructor tailored the class to work out mama stress.

This is my goal, to make it to this class once a week. I know know know how much better I feel but there is some block to just making myself carve out the time. Luckily, I have a husband that is fully supportive of me taking this time. It's one of those "duh, why haven't I been doing this all along?"

  1. Ask Eason and Eliot to build a guest cottage for the grandparents and let's see what they come up with.
