Ten years (and a new blog name!)

We celebrated Braedan’s ten-year birthday last weekend!  He was asking for a new pet…rabbit, hamster, guinea pig…anything!  In fact, he and the twins are practically begging on a daily basis for bunnies since their cousins just down the street from us have three of them. I’m holding out strong on this one…I really don’t think we need bunnies or any other furry creatures that require cleaning, feeding, etc.

We ended up giving him a metal detector instead, and I don’t think he was too disappointed. He’s had a lot of fun with it so far! We learned pretty quickly that it requires a lot of patience and a little hard work (digging holes). I  also realized quickly that we will probably have lots of little holes scattered around the yard…

He’s found some coins, a couple different shell casings (planning to use this website to identify them), some rusty nails and a few other unidentifiable objects. Even though it’s going to take a long time to cover our own 4 acres, I think we’ll soon begin looking for some new places to hunt for treasure.

I finally changed the name of the blog. “everydayLittleway” is inspired by St. Therese of Lisieux. I read her autobiography The Story of a Soul earlier this year, and continue to be inspired and affirmed by her little way

“Little things done out of love are those that charm the Heart of Christ… On the contrary, the most brilliant deeds, when done without love, are but nothingness.”
