He's having a morning nap while I get in an arm workout holding him safe from rolling off the couch... he looks like a lightweight but he's really not. He tried to get on my lap for a lap-cuddle like he sees his brother do, and this was the result of the trial. At least I managed to get the footrest up to help hold his cute lil' head when he started to fall.! πŸ’•

Sometimes the boys get a little over-excited when afternoon fruit snack time rolls around so we have been working really hard on snack-waiting manners to make sure none of us accidentally get hurt while I am cutting up their fruit... Two big, muscly and powerful Greyhounds running circles around the kitchen during food prep time is not a game this mama wants to play! It sometimes takes a few seconds but the Duo is doing fantastically well in their manners work! πŸ˜ƒ

Another pretty perfect camp day! A little walk along the shoreline. A sweet lil' green guy to greet us from the pipe outside the cabin door. And then a few moments lost in an activity book for me while the boys enjoyed their camp salads. πŸ’šπŸ’™

It was a drippy-dreary afternoon at camp today and the boys wanted absolutely no part of wandering if the wandering was being done outside... so instead, they hunkered down and napped..

And I wandered to visit the rock wall behind the guest cabin that I love so much and haven't been able to get safely near in a really long time because of the uneven ground. SO much beautiful new growth finding its way through the rock!

And then I wandered slowly down to the lakeshore to finally visit with the tree that's been calling... and I've been ignoring. I tried looking out toward Isle Royale but it only made me miss MY tree because it was the same view but different.

So I turned to look out the opposite direction... and when I did I saw only the perfect of this tree! I felt immediately protected by its drooping canopy... and entranced by its comforting leaf-framed view.

Second beginnings, even with trees, really can be the most incredible gifts if we just open up enough to allow them in.

He has the meanest mama EVER!!! Now that Fall has arrived, the leather couches are juuuuust slightly chilled in the mornings and Day is not a fan! He waits until about two minutes after I sit down before he starts DAYmanding I move so he can have the warmed-up spot. Usually, I give in but today I held my spot and he wasn't the most impressed... He did make a full-out and actual JUMP all by himself, though, so I'll take him being pissed off at me if it gives him enough reason to 'show me' by using his usually hidden big boy skills!! ☺️
