We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are." ~Marjorie Pay Hinckley~

Frogs, Famers Market and Family Friday Fun--- too bad we're on letter Q.

Entered for posterity about frog from last week:

um.. ... I regret to announce that this morning we went to the patio where Lukas left the frog under the safety of an overturned flower, which was now swarming with ants because the frog was dead. And sad when Lukas later thought that if he'd just go get it and put it back in its home it'd be okay. Yeah, doesn't work like that buddy. Wish 'just add water' applied here. He was upset for just a second, before wanting to rush off to, well, 'find another one!'

Since then, he goes to look at it. Every day. And he'll still pick it up sometimes. Gross.

I wondered if the frog community is mourning, or has at least organized and spread the word. They've been hiding well the last few days. As in non-present.

Til this one. Poor frog. We have that last one to refer to now, so there is some forced rejoining to habitat going on.

 Lukas was overjoyed to see that the carousel was going, and was so happy to ride... and that a nice helper man helped him out. (Included that in his prayer that night- so sweet!) This boy singing group was there from Oxford University with their English accents doing accapella music. Lukas was mesmorized and will run to any place that plays music.

The night before we'd taken Lukas to Ludy's for peach cobbler dessert-- and the Friday Night live band- this time celtic music-- with a bagpipe too! Our little free-spirited dancer had knee bopping, foot stomping, arm waving in the air moves when he thought nobody was looking. I felt so much joy to be with the two guys I love the most. :)
