I grew up always playing outside barefoot. My mom didn't ever have a problem with this, after all she grew up in the Philippines and went barefoot everywhere out of necessity. And it's funny that I would be so concerned with my girls having shoes on when they play outside. After all, I'm still going around barefoot, why shouldn't they? Well, I think the answer to that is that I'm way more protective of their perfect little piggies. But my girls follow the barefoot heritage of both me and my mom and run around barefoot outside as well. It reminds me of the many summers my brother and I spent outside barefoot and when I remember those times, it doesn't seem like such a terrible thing that they are running through the grass without their shoes on.

I really want to say thank you so much to all of you that posted comments or emailed me with support and encouragement about Caitlyn, or even just to say hi over the past couple months. It makes all the difference to read your encouraging thoughts and quick check ups. So thanks! We've been doing pretty good the past month. It's still a bit hectic, but I think I've got it down to where I can make some time to create at least a couple times a week. Now it's whether or not I can get the creative flow to work when I get that time, lol. Hopefully though, I'll be able to start doing the color challenges consistantly again ^_~. I've got some fun artwork scheduled to post throughout this next week of the very few layouts I've done over the past couple months, lol. So stayed tuned :D Hugs to all my readers out there! Thanks for sticking around!
