Friday Fave Five

This week's Friday Fave Five is being brought to you, as usual, by Susanne at Living To Tell The Story.
We had a great, if somewhat, busy week that included playing, traveling, and celebrating.

1. More days and nights spent with The New Boy and His Mama.

Silly Smiles

2. There are deer where The New Boy lives.

He is old enough now to notice.

3. We saw these creatures everywhere-- well, on roadsides near the woods and creeks. We finally asked someone what they were. Groundhogs.


4. After a day spent in airports and airplanes, we are back home at Willow's Cottage!


5. Just in time to celebrate eighth grade graduation with some special people at the school in South Los Angeles where we used to teach.

What a big boy he is getting to be!
What a delight to share the world of new discoveries with him.
Happy weekend.

Wonderful pictures! Looks like New Boy lives in a wonderful spot for little boys to investigate and explore the world.

The New boy looks so happy! I understand he was thrilled to see you!!! A very busy week and so good to hear about all you did!

Brenda said...

What a great week. Love all the pics of the animals. I don't think I have ever seen a groundhog in the wild! (but I have seen tapir. . . )

What a sweet boy, and what cute photos! It's so fun when they start noticing things!

Mary said...

Willow,

Love the New Boy and also the deer. I'm glad he is noticing. I remember when Brandon and Jordan were younger we saw deer crossing the road and they loved it.

Glad you are back in time for grade eight graduation. Brandon is graduating next week too, but not sure they are going to accomodate grandparents. :-(

Hope you have a great weekend, my friend.

Blessings,
Mary

Your New Boy is A-DOR-A-BLE!!!!! Goodness! How do you resist eating those sweet cheeks?! :-)

Melanie said...

Hasn't New Boy grown! Definate toddler legs rather than baby legs now. Ahhh. :-) How wonderful for him that he can experience some of those special contacts with nature moments.

Welcome home Willow.

Is the ground hog also called a woodchuck?

Very nice photos.

Hi, Willow. I'm pleased to "meet" you. I'm glad you enjoyed your visit to Ohio--we sure love living here. I've been to San Diego once. I loved it there! One of my favorite places was a ranunculus farm somewhere between SD and LA. Gorgeous!
Your grandson is adorable! How nice that you are able to fly in for a visit.
Your photos are wonderful. In fact, I think that's the best photo I've seen of a groundhog. They're cute aren't they? But they can do a lot of damage to a garden.

How sweet!

Tracy said...

New Boy has grown so big lately! Tell him to slow down... :o) What a sweetie-pie he is...love seeing those smiles! Terrific photos--especially that view from above. Hope you're settling in nicely at home again, Willow. Happy weekend((HUGS))
