5 Fact Friday...

 
"The trouble with facts is that there are so many of them."  ~Samuel McChord Crothers



Fact # 1...I am the mother of newly minted driver in the family (my son just got his license)




Fact # 2...I am also the mother of a brand new college freshman (how is it possible?...it was just yesterday that she was in first grade).


Fact # 3...If I could be any animal I would choose to be a dolphin (one of these days I want to swim with the dolphins).



Fact # 4...I'll only get in the pool if it feels almost like bath water (Yes, I'm a whimp)



Fact # 5...I never cease to be amazed by the wonders of nature


{Thanks Kim & Xanthe }

  6. Beautiful pictures! I agree with only swimming in warm pools!! I'm just a few years ahead of you on our journey's through parenting. My son just started his Junior year of college and my daughter is a HS senior/college freshman (concurrent enrollment). Is your daughter living on campus or commuting?

  7. Thanks everyone for your wonderful comments...I really appreciate you taking the time to leave some love!

    Julie- She is living on campus...about an 11 hour drive from where we live, but a short 1 1/2 hour direct flight. Being able to text and video chat with her is awesome!

  8. Lots of changes ahead for you. Our daughter is 8 hours away starting her sophomore year. It is good for them to be away, they definitely become new people living that far away. I agree about the pool water, that is why I like hot tubs :)

    1. Congrats to your daughter! I was wondering what those flowers were too...I'll have to investigate (ie. Google) them.

    2. I checked Google images and it looks like the flower is called cleome (spider flower) or spinosa. Love Google!
