Butterflies

I feel like I've been holding my breathe all week. You know that feeling? Jason has been out of town, and the boys and I have had something every night. Our days have been very scheduled, too. I just wanted everything to go smoothly. ; ) 

So now it's Friday, and I'm so thankful we've made it. The boys and I had a fun few days.

Yesterday I even juggled them and Riley at Petsmart. I know that's not a big deal for some of you, but it is for me. Ha!

Last night we went to our second SHARE butterfly release. Shannon and Westin joined us. I'm so glad they came.
Zach is so gentle with his bugs. He had at least three butterflies on him most of the time. We had to convince him to let them fly away. ; )
Colson really didn't know what to think, but he liked running around outside barefoot.
Sweet boys
Shannon and I were laughing about how Westin follows Zach and Colson follows Westin. We are in trouble!

Doing things like this in honor of Reese are becoming a normal part of our lives, and that's just how I want it to be.

I'm waiting for God to make things right. I'm counting on God to listen to me.

Thinking of you all weekend! I'm thankful you have a tradition for Reese on Monther's Day weekend (is it same time every year?) That pic of all three boys is precious! Love you!

I love the way you honor Reese in the sweetest ways, I hope you feel extra close to her tomorrow on Mother's day! Thank you for the verse you posted, claiming that one this week!

I'm pretty sure I saw Zach on the news holding his butterfly. This is such a wonderful thing for families. I'm glad someone thought of doing it.
