Why? my blog title "Better2me"

As a woman, mother, and wife my first instinct is to take care of those around me. I nurture those I love in many ways through out the day, but sometimes find myself neglecting me. Recently I realized that I need to nurture myself as well. So this blog is about ME!!!!! What fills my heart; my simple life of kids, husband, animals, home, and creativity. For being better2me leads me to be better to those I love.

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. See Soulemama to play along.

My Little Entrepreneur



Coming home from Labor Day, Kevin took Keaton and S boys in the airplane while I drove. Since they arrived so much earlier then I did Kev took them all on a tractor ride through the neighborhood, where they came upon Taitlin selling lemonade. Kevin said as soon as Keaton saw the twenty dollars Taitlin had made his eyes lit up and his brain starting working.

As soon as the tractor was safe in the barn Keaton contacted his best friend Jake and together they canvased the neighborhood for trees that hung over the horse trails bearing lemons. When I got home I was immediately enlisted to make lemonade and a stand was set up on the corner. In a short few hours my ever patient Keaton, and Jake made 5.25, the lemonade was empty and no more lemons remained.

Keaton quickly talked me into going to the store for more lemons, sugar, and cups and the next day when he got home he set up the lemonade stand again and was surprised when people gave him money for nothing. He told me he tried to give it back if they didn't want lemonade and they told him it was for being so patient and sitting out in the hot sun for two days.

Today when he got up he had to put on sweats and wear a sweatshirt to school. As he was walking out the door he looked up at the cloudy sky and stated "Today I think I will sell hot chocolate!".

He definitely is a hard worker and a future entrepreneur!!!!!!!!
