The weather has been amazing the last couple of days – just what I asked for! I’ve sent the kids out to get muddy and soak up the fresh air. Of course not all the kids are outside yet and my oldest can’t stand to be muddy so he spent a good amount of time swearing to boredom while the baby breaks down in tears every time I have to tell her the outside is closed and bring her in well after the sun has started to set.
So I’ve spent a good amount of time glancing out the back door and each time thinking there’s a figure in the neighbor’s bushes. At the right angle, this plastic bag totally looks like an all-white Marian statue with her arms outstretched towards my backyard.
For now, I’m calling her Our Lady of the Backyard and taking a minute to remember I’d like to get a real statue out there someday soon.
