Ever since I was a little girl, I have always loved Summer mostly because of the mysterious but beautiful glimpse that you catch of lightning bugs during the night. I love looking out towards the fields and seeing them filled with yellow specks.

This weekend Charli helped catch fireflies for the very first time. This is the girl that screams, runs and cringes at the thought or sight of any bug. It's simply hilarious but I love watching her get scared of them (Bad Mommy, I know!)

There he goes with his fake smile again!
I didn't even know my Mom took this picture *thanks Mom*

Haha, we both look grossed out.
But I promise that I am not!
This comes from the girl that put a dead copperhead in our kitchen garbage whenever I was child.
My Mom about died.

I promise that my child is not always wearing crazy funky clothes and that I do brush her hair! She loves to dress herself up and hey she is 4 so why not let her do it? Also, the temperature in Kentucky has been hot as hello lately, so C.B.'s curly hair goes POW! and frizzes up everywhere.

Lightning bugs & honey suckles remind me so much of summer when I was little. Nothing better than that! I need to go catch some with Riley but the mosquitos are so dang bad here!

My kids love to catch fireflies!
Charli is so cute. I think she's around Lexie's age, but she looks so much older than her!

Catching fieflies in the summer is the best!! I loved doing ths as a child. We would make neclaces from their little lites. Now my daughters catches them, uses them for a nite light, then lets go in the moring. Yes one morning my youngest let them lose in the house!! I am a momma who has to kill snacks sometimes, country girl hear, so a few fireflies in the house no worries. I love following your blog!!
PS I love how your daughter dresses!!

We do have a very similar blog design. It looks like we used the same designer. Great minds think alike ;-)

My kids love lightning bugs. They will spend forever try to catch them and just squeal with delight. We have only been in Maryland for 15 months and Colorado doesn't have lightning bugs so they are also new to them.

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
