I wanted to start this post by saying Happy Birthday to my

Now. I am hoping that anyone eagerly anticipating my Saturday Scavenger Shots post (although who that would be, I'm not sure) was able to exercise PATIENCE. Here it is, Monday...and here I am finally posting a Saturday post. This week's word was choosen by Tara @ Eclectic Spaghetti.
I tend to think of myself as possessing PATIENCE. Other times, though, I feel more like what passes for PATIENCE is more like inertia or fear of rocking some boat. Still, PATIENCE is a virtue, or so it is said. So I will try and take some credit here for possessing at least the semblance of some virtue!
Having to wait until Monday to post gave me an extra opportunity to find the right photo for the theme. Yesterday (Sunday) DR and I had Little Prince over for a few hours while his mom was having her graduation from Nursing school. It is always fun, and a bit easier, to have one of the kids at a time.
Having a four year old to care for exercises my PATIENCE in a way that I don't get much practice at these days. Little Prince is such a good boy. Very easy going and happy. I know he doesn't look too happy here! He is staring intently at Spongebob Squarepants...and I think we'd tired him out in the pool. But anyway, even very good small children do require the PATIENCE it takes to listen constantly. They so want to interact in every moment. I am someone who can easily zone out...and I have a lot more room to do that now that my own children are fairly grown. But with younger children it seems very important, to me, to give them that feedback and stimulating conversation that they tend to enjoy. So....PATIENCE :)
I hope you all had a good weekend and will have the PATIENCE to wait through another week for yet another weekend. Now, we just have to see who Tara tags for this coming week.
