the birthday party was after school at the park. his whole class was invited. he was so excited. he made her a necklace and a space picture for her gift. then he got sick and couldn't go to her party. he was worried that he couldn't give her the gift. we got the present to her and she said "i am going to wear it everyday".

there was thunder and lightning all night. the excitement and electricity keep them up way past their bedtime. bed covers flew over their heads with every roar of thunder, and their eyes stayed wide open.

he very carefully stacks the rocks over and over until they are perfectly balanced,then happily knocks them down and moves on. i love how children live in the moment.

he said "mommy do you want to go on a date to the hug factory"?


how great is it to know that it doesn't matter what you do, you will not make a mistake. what are you going to do today?

she took this picture for me on the way to friday dinner. it instantly reminds me of a place where everyday is a better day, except for the day we saw clouds like these. dinner and company was wonderful. an exciting thunderstorm did follow, even though it was like 90 degrees at night.


he made these cookies for the family. he has cooked for us since about age 2. unfortunately i ate the majority of these delicious cookies.
