You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.'

You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

Eleanor Roosevelt

Rock On!

 Like most kids, my grandsons have a fasination with  rocks. At ages 5 and 3 years old they love to pick them up, collect them and of course throw them too. Fortunately for them they not only live in a town that offers many opportunities for these activities but also boasts "rock" as part of its name. Yes, you can find rocks of all shapes and sizes here. From the boulderous natural coastline to the smooth popplestones that frame our beaches;  there are no shortages of rocks here.  It is popplestones however that take center stage today. My grandsons collected and painted these beautiful smooth stones for their dad for Father's Day.  The older one practiced his handwriting and  then proudly presented  these "Vegetable Markers" to their Dad!

                 




Of course their works of art were received with  the heartfelt  OOHs  and AHHHs that they deserved. They are now on display  in the family vegetable garden.
