And the Living is Easy

Sometimes, I get a little tunnel vision. I actually might *gasp* complain about the Hatchlings not wanting to be outside for another hour when I’ve gotten to be outside four hours already.

Day 51: Tennis on clay courts, climbing trees, swimming lessons for H#2, lunch and library with just the big kids, 1st library card and swimming certificate for H#2

Or stress about volunteer duties and responsibilities I’ve taken on.

Day 52

Day 52: Caught the bully guinea for his new home, play time with the big kids at The Pool, milkshake for H#3

Or lament that swimming lessons for the elder two can’t be synced at the same time so I have to be at The Pool for an hour instead of 30 minutes. (To be fair, The Pool isn’t open during morning swimming lessons, so I have to distract H#3 from wanting to get into the big pool and be content with the baby pool. But still.)

Day 53

Day 53: Bug and butterfly catching, storm watching, heart drawing

I have no business complaining. Funny how hard that is to remember sometimes.

Day 54

Day 54: Lazy Sunday (with hardly any pics to prove it!) lounging, drinking juice from the carton (per Granny’s encouragement and despite The Husband’s discouragement), catching giant slugs

Our older boy, my H2, has had episodes of SVT (rapid heart rate) for five years now. It was managed with medication for a while, then seemed to go away, but then came back last school year. Due to the unpredictability of it and the resulting disruption and anxiety it causes him, he is scheduled for a heart ablation catheterization procedure tomorrow early in the morning. Hopefully the doctors will be able to find and eliminate the extra electrical pathways responsible. Fortunately, this is a pretty routine procedure with great success rates. But as the saying goes, no surgery or procedure is minor if it's happening to you or a loved one. We welcome prayers, good vibes, positive thoughts, juju, mojo, whatever our friends can muster. (This picture was taken two weeks ago during an echocardiogram. He was fascinated, and I couldn't help but remember the first time I got to hear that same, sweet heartbeat...) ❤ Totally disturbing. #halloween H2 suggested we go on a nature walk yesterday through the woods with walkie talkies. (And BB guns, of course, because, boys.) It was hot, it was muggy, it was thorny, it was spider webby, it was buggy, it was tiring. 
But. 
We found a snapping turtle shell and almost perfect skeleton, a giant orb weaver spider in all its splendor, a great place for a fort, lots of obstacles to traverse, and a new path home. And that made it all worth it. Do we look like we know what we're doing? #old #tailgating #goheels🐏 #goirish🍀 #wedontgetoutmuch Finished! #colorrun #chathamcharter20 Full moon in front of us, sunrise behind us. #fullmoon #sunrise #chathamnc
