Growing up I think we are all told how we should do things. Do good in school, be good to your parents, be nice to your friends.....the list could go on and on. Anyone with children knows that just as our parents hoped and prayed for these things so do we, and really we are lucky to get half of what we had hoped for. Looking back at life I know I can admit I have done many things wrong and my path has been more of a maze then anything. Yet I sit here today looking at my life and know I wouldn't change a thing. It may not have been the easiest path or the right path all the time but it has led me to an amazing place, and really changed my perspective as a parent. Take some time to sit back today and think about all the struggles you have faced and remember when your children do something you may not like or approve of they have to find their path.
We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol
