a pretty cool life.: the bright side.

the bright side.


I mentioned yesterday how we've been working hard to get our yard prettied up and in summer shape.
We were due for fresh sand in our sandbox too, so on one of our trips out for mulch I picked up a few bags of play sand.

Sister couldn't wait to get right in, so we dumped the sand into our turtle the second we got home.
And just like dumping out the cereal box and finding the toy, we found rock after rock.
So it really wasn't like a prize in the cereal box.
It was more like finding a whole bunch of rocks in bags of sand.
Grumble, grumble, grumble.
I wanted sand, not rocks.
Grumble, grumble, grumble.


The two younger ones went inside for naps and my 6 year old and I sat and sifted through the sand like a couple of miners panning for gold.
He thought it was pretty much the coolest thing ever.
He had a mission to get them out and he took his job seriously.
No grumbling.
Just fun.
Just looking at the bright side.

Another lesson in mothering {and life} learned.


And to make things even sweeter, we found three new heart rocks to add to my collection. :)
