"On the surface, I am an average person, but to my heart I am not an average person. To my heart, I am a great moment. The challenge I face is how to dedicate everything I have inside me to fulfilling this moment."
Abraham Heschel, 1965
This is what I was working on this morning. Re-organizing my closet and room. While I was otherwise engaged, this is what tyce was working on. Swimming lessons, in the bathtub with all his clothes on. Summer is just around the corner, you can never start too early I guess! side note* of course I had just changed his diaper and gotten him dressed not 2 minutes before he decided to cool off in the tub!
Things get a little dreary out here in the winter. I think it has been cloudy and rainy for 3 weeks straight. I thought I moved away from that when I left Seattle...I think it is following me. So in order to beat the gloom, we had a little "campout" lunch and made hot dogs and other camping treats. As you can see, we are in a very scenic part of our living room with a real evergreen brought in just for the occasion! Don't worry, our Christmas tree has been taken down since these photos.
I don't know if I am happy or sad about the fact that madi moved out of nursery and into sunbeams. That seems so old, I feel like she is too little to be in sunbeams. I think she is the youngest in her class, she just turned 3 in october and went into sunbeams in january!! where has the time gone? I was in the grocery store the other day and madisen was throwing a fit about something and a lady turned to me and said, "don't worry, tomorrow she will be 18". I feel like that is true, how quickly child hood passes. It makes me want to do a better job of not missing it. Regardless, she looks so cute!!!
