Compassion: A little lesson for me from my boys

We're loving it here.  We're staying super busy

organizing areas in our new home...


enjoying ridiculously gorgeous weather...


being silly...

 getting to know really nice neighbors...
making new friends...
{haven't pulled out my camera with them... yet}


celebrating...

checking out new parks {and forgetting to bring my camera}...


crafting...
{this project is now done and waiting to be hung so I can show you... I loooove it!}


loving their first Padres game...

 and swimming {almost} daily!
{oh, and just in case you see this hideous bumble bee death trap at Wally World... save your 7 bucks.  It's the lamest thing I ever bought... your kid will practically drown while in it, the antennae are in the perfect location for chewing, and that sunshade stayed up for about a milli-second tops.  Back to the store for sure!}

But the other day we saw something sad...
a dead baby lizard in the bottom of the pool.

I was kind of grossed out, 
but the boys had a very different reaction
{before jumping right in and swimming with it before I had the chance to get 
the skimmer to the bottom of the deep end and scoop it out... and then I was REALLY grossed out!}



"Oh, that is SO sad."

"I feel so bad for its Mom and Dad."

"Mommy, will it go to lizard heaven?"


"I just feel SO sad for the little lizard."


I love seeing my boys sweet, loving personalities shine in little moments like this. We had a similar conversation about a dead gopher they saw a few weeks ago.  Did I mention that we're loving that we live in the "country" part of San Diego?  Tonight while night swimming we saw a BAT... eeeeeek!

We moved from Utah to Yuma, AZ and we see bats at night all the time. It's kind of crazy and makes u want to stay inside.
