A walk to remember

of my favorite things about being a stay-at-home mom is the ability to go on field trips. I LOVE field trips. Today we had one planned. I arrived at school promptly... ready to go, but when I got there the bus was GONE! The teacher told us the wrong departure time, so I drove my car in panic mode to the nature place and arrived about 10 minutes late. I was all in a tither, but Little Chick was just fine. She wasn't worried. She knew I'd come! So glad she had faith in me;)

got to stomp around in the muddy woods in our cute little...

Rain boots:)

lakes are still thawing out. But the snow is almost completely gone and the ice is melting:) That's CRAZY. It's usually much later than this...YIPPEE!!!

you know squirrels build nests in the tip tops of trees?? I thought they just lived in the holes in the trees. See you learn something new everyday:)

held snakes, petted turtles and salamanders. It was crazy fun;) I was so proud of my Little Chick for being brave. Some of the boys wouldn't even hold the snake.

Good times:)
It seems like yesterday I went on this exact same field trip with my Big Chick. Time goes so fast. Just want to remember every minute.

Have a blessed day.

Pin It!


  1. What fun and what cute wellies! I know a couple of boys who are terrified of snakes. I think that's so funny. Your sweet little chick was so brave!

    Happy Wednesday, Becky!

She is lucky to have you so invested in her, they both are! And I love that first pic of the two of you, it looks like it was taken in the 70's :)

  13. Love the rain boots so cute! And I wish I could do this, I will miss that not being a stay at home mommy...remember these days they go by quick!! xo

  18. I've been clicking through blogs for a couple of days, and yours really stood out. Just so much warmth and love, it really shines. You are consciously aware of how you are blessed by God and the joy that comes out of that is tangible. I had to say something. Thank You! I'll be back!

  27. It sounds as though you had a wonderful field trip. So happy for you. I *love* the boots. How cool are they? :)


  28. Oh wow I need some of those very cute boots! I really like your art in the post before this one. your doing great!

  29. Your boots are adorable. I think I've only been on a couple of field trips--sadly, I always get the "no younger siblings allowed" note which knocks me off the roster. Someday I'll be able to go on more of them! :) Looks like this was a fun one!

  30. Hi Becky! LOVE the rain boots...very cute!! I'm looking forward to field trips when my youngest is a little older and in's hard for me to volunteer now because I need to be at home with her...

    Have a great weekend ~

    :) T

  31. Yes... Um, I would have NOT held the snake. We have many, let me repeat MANY grass snakes that come back and nest in our yard each summer. I have developed a dislike... LOL

  32. I love that picture of you and little chick hugging! These memories are so so precious! I'm glad you are loving every minute Becky. Little Chick will remember always too! Are you scrapbooking this?

  33. Hey Becky! Sounds like fun! Love the boots! You are making such wonderful memories for lil' chick and for yourself. I love the piece you made for the school auction in your last post. One of my favorite scriptures. It really does lift my spirit to think on those things which are all qualities of our wonderful and amazing God. Oh I'm having my first give away over at Mr. BibleHead... stop on over .

  34. That is Awesome, ALL BUT THE SNAKE HOLDING ;)

  35. Wonderful times!! love the boots!

  37. That last picture is so are a beautiful lady! What a sweet time. I love your rain boots! We were at Target today and my oldest daughter wanted me to get her and her 2 year old sister matching rain boots, and I said no. This makes me reconsider! :) They are so cute. And yes, she's brave! I wouldn't touch a snake!

  38. What a great trip, I love it!

    I really do love your rain boots. I think I need some. Even though I'd look silly wearing them in So Cal.

  39. Love your boots! Sweet girl.
