Favorite Photo Friday- Holmes Lake

Fifth grade has been busy and sometimes hard, and I've been busy at work too -- all good, of course,
but I just knew that lately
Miss M has been loving some simple times hanging out together. 

Last weekend, we ran errands, worked at the church art sale together,
visited some open houses and
have been reading an American Girl mystery together. 
Besides the unspoken benefit of both she and I feeling connected
 and good,
my heart soared when she told me she had so much fun and 
each day was the best day ever! 
I love her so.

Earlier this week, we took a little venture out to a favorite location of mine,
near a lake where the light is simply lovely as the sun goes down.

Miss M was in a happy mood and we had so much fun getting a few photos. 
 I think these are some of my favorites and show her true smiles
 (not her forced ones that I often get)! 

Rain forecast here for the weekend  --
hitting the Redbox today and hoping for some movie fun!
Happy Weekend!!

I totally feel your pain on the 5th grade homework. Sometimes kids just need to back up to the simple things to feel better. So glad you and Maddie are having good quality bonding time.
