I saved this post about Mother's Day because I did not want it to get lost or mixed up in all of the graduation celebration postings. This one deserves its own glory.
Even after so much happening just the day before, Ethan, Ellie and Kohlton put on a Mother's Day brunch for myself, Britt and Linda (Kohlton's mother and grandmother).
One afternoon, Ethan, Ellie and Remmie went for a walk or hike at a local wilderness park. They went looking for a few already fallen and dead tree trunks that had the right kind of angles. It took a while, but they found just what they were looking for. Remmie helped by dragging or pulling some of the tree parts back to the truck. I am sure he was happy to be included in the action. Then the kids set to creating the piece. Ethan used the sander in such a way that the tips of the hanger parts look chiseled. He toed in the pieces from the back so that you cannot see any of the hardware that keeps it together.
I am so thankful that I have such loving, creative kids. I am a proud and honored mama.
