~capturing the context of contentment in everyday life~
every Thursday at Like Mother, Like Daughter
On Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, Jared was working on a job out of town. I think it’s been the first time I’ve solo parented since last fall… I was really actually kinda nervous. And thoughts such as “am I really allowed to be home alone all night with only me watching the kids?” Somehow or other I felt like I did the first time I stayed home and watched my sleeping baby brother for 30 minutes while my mom ran to the store. I think I was 10? or maybe 11? I don’t remember. Anyways, we survived (then and now).
I knew the temperatures were going to be favorable for going to the beach (really just a pond at a state park), but it’s nice enough, and calm, and close… and free. So wins all around. My mom was free from work and so was my sister. As much as I like going to the beach, I really don’t fancy going there by myself, just too many little ones and not enough eyes to watch.
I really loved the way the bright green of the field came through the darkened trees. I was in a slight hurry to snap this photo as we were trying to pack up to leave by this point, but I’m glad I did. Something about the simple contrast between the light and the darkness.
Folks it is waaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyy past my bedtime (I didn’t realized editing pictures could take up so much time)
