lemonademakinmama The party pit is about 70% done. Some people have already succumbed to the lure of the hammock.... (We still need to paint the second picnic table, the chairs & finish the garden boxes & fire pit to name a few and don't even get me started on the edging and the weeds. Whah! Oh...and hang the party lights!!) #vscocam 4h

lemonademakinmama "You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable." --Kahlil Gibran

lemonademakinmama Beware; raw...I was struggling with this before our 504 meeting today where all faults get laid bare for all to see and then while processing all the raw emotions that go with that, a neighbor I have never met chose this day to come tell me about a situation involving said child. She was very kind but oh man...the timing.... Feels like too much in one evening. Bawling all night is perfectly acceptable right? Motherhood is hard. Period. 2d
  •   abitoftlc Sing it sister, praying for ya 🏼 we always talk about how wonderful being a Mama is but being a Mama is so so hard too!! Thanks for keepin it real @lemonademakinmama 2d
  •   thenuthousefive_mama Oh sweet Sasha. Being a Mommy is the hardest, followed closely by being a a Daddy. Standing together as parents knowing God is steering this boat if life will sustain you. Praying for you. 2d

lemonademakinmama Working off nerves...we have a 504 planning meeting for one kiddo this afternoon and I am all in knots so I redecorated the house after work. (Through to be fair I often do that after work because I just can't shut it off after spending all morning tweaking and organizing other peoples things.) I put all of our little instagram books (printed at printstagram) in a tin container and I love when people come over and look through them! 2d

lemonademakinmama Twenty two years ago, @adrainbrodeur took me on our first date. I wish I could remember the date details other than the kiss at the end but they have long since faded in light of the fireworks finale... Anyhow...I am loving this "We still do" frame by @everthinehome It is adorably chippy and sweet and perfect for the one wedding photo I own! How I love this man of mine. 3d

lemonademakinmama Yesterday I got a text from one of my besties, @betsywatters talking about how hard and lonely this season of parenting teens is...I texted her back asking if she could read my mind?? A few weeks ago I challenged my kids to bring a devo of their own choice to the breakfast table twice a week and share it. They haven't been big on the idea and I haven't pushed but today my son brought the proverb of the day. After a few very tough weeks and sad attempts at conversations that went nowhere, I listened in awe as he read words that backed up my many mom-talks and I could see them making him pause. He even highlighted a few things of his own accord... Once again I am reminded that we are never alone in this parenting thing...God wants to reach our kids hearts even more than we do!! #dailythankfuls 3d
  •   jennifergrimes98 What a gift, Sasha! Hang in there-- I'm here with you in the trenches of parenting teenagers. Nothing else has made me cling to God so desperately. 3d
  •   heartmyarrows Great idea! I'm not gonna forget about this one! 3d
  •   mjfamilyfarms So thing with mamas of young ones! Lol I'm reminded how the last season didn't seem so hard when we are up to our next in the current one! All my girls have little ones now! 3d
  •   keh2525 I hear you girl 3d
  •   rowiegrl Thank you for sharing! I'm trying to get more of this in my teens lives. There are so many great options I get overwhelmed. 3d
  •   kaw72 Right there with you 3d
  •   cottagechic Just keep on being your sweet encouraging self! Parenting isn't for Cowards! 3d
  •   farmgirlpaints He looks like a man here. 3d

lemonademakinmama It cracks me up that as soon as Joe gets home from school his birds start getting crazy and loud until he comes in to his room and says hi to them. (Not quite like a dog's tail wag but I suppose it's kinda close....for a bird!) 4d

lemonademakinmama It only took talking the print shop guy at office max into typing out & printing up a $3 poster for me to delight my daughter. "Always be yourself. Unless you can be a unicorn. Then always be a unicorn." If you knew her...you would totally KNOW this is her. #unicornsforever 4d

lemonademakinmama Isn't marriage the funniest thing? Adrain brought home some of the ugliest lawn chairs I have ever seen because we desperately needed some that weren't broken... I wanted to return them but he insisted we keep them because they reclined...well after a few sick days (yay finally on the mend) the sunshine came out and guess where I ended up this afternoon? Yup....in the worlds most comfy reclining lawn chair. Well done @adrainbrodeur you were RIGHT. (For the record....I still think they are crazy ugly.) 4d
