Wow. Life has been crazy lately. I've become accustomed to a general sense of crazy, but every now and again when I travel twice within a four week period and there are family celebrations and milestones and looming projects, the crazy exceeds my current limit and things start to "fall off."
First thing to go? The blog.
but hey, at least I'm not letting the kids "fall off."
It's good to be back.
I'm returning with this very pretty bowl of strawberries. Do me a favor and photograph something you eat today. In the northern hemisphere, we're finally heading into spring and I'm so looking forward to eating beautiful food. Speaking of food …
Today … I ate breakfast (sitting at the table) before I woke up the kids. Note to self: Do this again sometime soon.
Today … I have a meeting with our BPS Featured Teachers, Elizabeth, Georgana and Lisa. I am really enjoying connecting to them once a month, as we work together on bringing the BPS community our first round of inspiring project classes.
Today … I enjoyed this conversation with Taft as he was headed to the bus stop.
Mom: Who loves you the most?
Taft: My mom. She loves me first. Who loves me second? My Grandma. Who loves me third? My Dad. Who loves me fourth? My Grandpa.
Mom: I think you are a very loved little boy.
Taft: That's for sure.
I'm hoping to find time to let this exchange become a scrapbook
page. I've committed myself to two pages a week for the final weeks of
Library of Memories and I'm just barely scraping by.
Today … I noticed how much Chase has changed in one year. He recently traded in his glasses for contacts and taught himself how to put them in (this required some serious effort and patience.) He comes downstairs smelling really good and brushes his teeth without being asked. He refuses to admit that he has a crush. I'm naive, but I'm not stupid.
Today … I'm planting flowers in my pots on my porch, no matter what!
What are you doing, no matter what?
