Days like this

When it's not always raining there'll be days like this
 
When there's no one complaining there'll be days like this
 
When everything falls into place like the flick of a switch
 
Well my mama told me there'll be days like this

looking a bit GQ aren't we




Christopher and Grammie

Rick, thank you endless for being the man that you are!

Each milestone that our children make and we are able to

be with them side by side brings such joy to my heart

Our love for the kids has taught them

 that even in separateness

 Mom and Dad love them the most!




Well my mama told me there'll be days like this...

love, kate

Kate, I hope I get to run into you to this time around at Country Roads.
You are such a treat to hear from with your uplifting spirit. I can read the smile on your face with every post and comment.
All us gals should have a picnic one day.
That would be great.

Oh Kate, what darling photos! And you look like you could be siblings! No way do you look like mother and son, uh uh.

You are such a gentle soul. Your children are just so unbelievably blessed to have you as a mama.

Love you, girl!

I love Van Morrison,and that song! Your baby boy is looking mighty fine there. Time passes so quickly when it comes to our kids. I think its pretty amazing you have a good relationship with your children's dad. Not everyone has that, and I know, personally, that makes it much better for your family!
Take care, Sue

Hi Kate, You look like you could be going to the prom:) Your son is very handsome and it is so great that you and your children's dad have such a great relationship. I am sure they will learn much from it.

How can you have a son going to Prom? Love the photos. Where does the time go? My son will be graduating 8th grade this year and sometimes when I look at him all I can think is "where did my little boy go?" Kinda sad, huh.

Enjoy the rest of your week.

Ok, I can't let that one go without a comment! When Rick showed me that photo, I was positively dying!!! So classic, and perfect for showing to his future girlfriends! And when my mom saw the photo of you and Chris, she asked if you were his date. So, thanks for making me look bad ;) Seriously though, this life we share is so amazing and wonderful and I am proud of the way you both make it work. Love ya Princess! :))

I agree with everyone, you look like you ought to be his date! What a darling guy! Hope your day was a good one, Sweet Kate!
Sending lots of hugs and love your way!
