We have now entered the Holding Pattern

The entry to a holding pattern is often the hardest part for a novice pilot to grasp, and determining and executing the proper entry while simultaneously controlling the aircraft, navigating and communicating with ATC requires practice.

IMG_0420 We’re in a holding pattern.  A time of waiting. 

IMG_0425 Much like my patient little friend.

IMG_0417 Oh sure, there are lots of things going on in the garden, special days to celebrate, but really, nothing compares to waiting on a baby.

Not even born, and already she is the center of our world.

Two weeks and counting . . .

Oh what joy, to be waiting for the birth of a baby! There is nothing better, is there?

We've had a bit of a baby boomlet in our family this year -- one boy, one girl, and twin boys too!

Thank you for your dear comment about my Dad, and his generation. I know what you are going thru, watching your Dad fade -- it's almost as if we watch them sort of dissolve, and it is heart wrenching. My best wishes to you in this time of both great joy, and great sorrow.

It's the price we pay for loving, isn't it? And how lucky we are, to have such loving Daddies.

Oh, I remember that precious time when my sister had her little boys. She couldn't wait for them to arrive, but also enjoyed the peaceful time when they were still in her womb. I bet you can't wait though!!! :-)

And I hope that your parents are still able to stay in their home with each other. What a love story - to the end!!

Love and hugs! Silke

Two weeks! Aaaaah! I love this time of anticipation. I hope she enjoys every minute of being pampered until the little one arrives.

I had to laugh at that photo. Doesn't it look like the pale green part in the middle of its head is a human face? Like an old man? Wearing a dark green helmet? Heeheeehee
