riverains Spring. Denim on the line. Soft denim, worn out knees, pinafore dress worn by three little girls, daddy's grease spots. Soft grass under my bare feet, barn swallows drifting silently in and out of sight while robins, red winged blackbirds, Orioles, and the tiny peeps of a family of starlings fill the air. Wind pushes the barn door closed with a groan and carries to my nose the wonderful scent of lilacs in bloom. #riverains_farm 1w

riverains Last week she stumbled down the stairs with sleepy curls plastered to her head and fell back asleep in my arms. Oh! Sweet Sleeping Baby Moment! My heart got a squeezey feeling and I melted into her warmth and smell. I asked my oldest daughter to take picture, since she was already snapping away with gleeful abandon, following her kitty from room to room. She stopped for a moment and took a picture of me and "the Baby". Except. She's not a baby. As I looked at the images on the camera that became quite clear! Her arms and legs hung of my lap, her head didn't fit under my chin....she's my baby. The baby of the family. But Not actually a baby. These last remnants of babyish sleep are few and far between and saying goodbye to the baby season of my life is harder than I ever expected it to be. #preciousbabymoments #dontblink #riverains_ec #blessings 2w

  •   riverains @argphotog oh man! Exactly! So many things passed down between my 3 girls and now I'm packing them away for the last time. 1w

riverains My "baby" is doing so well with her letter writing and reading lessons. I'm not sure I'm ready for her to be so big! #homeschooling #babygirl #mamasnotready 3w

riverains Washing her many "eggies". 3 dozen washed, 1 dozen in the pot hard boiling for supper, and 4 dozen in the fridge. We're over run. I think she may need to haul those things door to door in a wagon to get them all sold! #farmlife #egglife #homeschooling 4w
