My bloggy friend Sharon at Good, True, and Beautiful has a fabulous weekly feature called “Just for the Joy of It”. I’ve always wanted to join in the fun but never had a chance to put a post together. Then, in the middle of our difficult month, I captured a few images that seemed to spell out the way my little family had managed to make lemonade from some pretty sour lemons.
This month I’m squirreled away in a hotel with my daughter while my husband juggles taking care of work and commuting a few hours out to see us every chance he can get. Our days are spent in an intense feeding clinic, and our nights are spent… like this:
Carrying around an empty cooler (don’t know why this is fun, but apparently it is):
playing at the local park
jumping off of daddy:
…and more swimming…
trying on daddy’s hat
watching the world go by outside our window
smearing mashed potatoes on our face
learning a new crinkle smile
and snuggling babies.
Plus much more, including sitting by the fireplace in our hotel room. It’s the little things, right? So there you have it, some photos from the past two weeks… just for the JOY of it!
