The Dogwood Blooms - Macro Monday



We had a 'Dad free weekend' (according to my kids) but it was not the kind of Dad free weekend I usually enjoy. He was away on a retreat, and I'm usually very happy to have the van all to myslf...but not this time........ no no no 7 kids and a weekend means driving in my van....all weekend long...from 7.20 am to 12.30am.

My kids  had other plans!!

Not only that I couldn't get connected ...again...to the internet and I tell you something, that does not make my day. So the concenses is that when Dad goes away, now Mum has 2 jobs to do...be a Mum & a Dad (aka chauffeur)!

This is one Monday morning I'm going to enjoy....Dad, baby, & preker...all upstairs watching TV, just where they should be. Not the typical Monday morning, but heck who's complaining?
