VISITORS FROM MARS-JUST JOKING



#17 ON MY LIST OF 1000 GIFTS FROM THE LORD...FRIENDS

Sunday, Willie bo Dillie took baby Cai Ocean to DC to visit his father and family. Zay was camping with friends and it was just Zarian and I enjoying some R&R.

I made us some fresh Parsley tea and sat on the porch soaking up the sounds of squirrels, birds and the pages turning in the book that I just dove into-BTW it is called the "Read Aloud Handbook" and IT IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! read it if you get the chance, the statistics are mind blowing of students that had parents read aloud to them in childhood.

ANYHOO... my friends Ryan and Ronda (my BFF from
LOVE IS KIND) came to play "cowboys" with Zarian since his latest fashion is cowboy boots and a vest that is 30 years old (belonged to my bro @ 5 years old) and a 3-6 month old cowboy hat that belonged to Cai. (He makes it fit)...





Ryan was adorned with the latest Goodwill find-A COWBOY HAT





We had a grand ole time-
