Probably the greatest thing that has struck me though, beyond the "this would make a great blog post", is that I need to be present and active. Need to be involved in what is going on, either present in what our boys are doing, or present in the chore that needs to be done.
~ Our boys seem to be growing and changing so fast. ~
It has been a joy to see our oldest smiling lately. To see, what seems like, him happy in his own skin. I desire to find more things he is good at and encourage more activities in those. I want to find these things and encourage them, to foster them, so that the hard things in life seem more bearable and doable. Isn't that true in life, when you time to follow your passion, the harder things seem easier?
Mr. Obi-hyper-wan is getting back to normal after breaking his foot about a month ago. He had his last follow up appointment yesterday. He is definitely on the mend and growing wearing from taking it easy. Good thing baseball is over as there is one more week of no running, jumping, pounding on his foot. The pool is allowed and biking can be good to ~ both of which he loves to do over the summer!
Anyhoot, wrapping up what could be the last post in June 2013, here are some parting photos and thoughts:
Doesn't he look like a teen? Tall, music and texting!
Morning Sunshine is just one name he goes by!
Other things to be thankful for:
~ lots of knitting going on! Many, many hours!
~ laughs with Kevin! Moments when the relationship is just easy and laughing and chatting are as second nature as breathing. No effort required.
~ slow mornings~ selling of used curriculum and toys no longer needed (feels so good to purge and "get paid" for it!)
