enjoying the little things these past two weeks.
doing what i can to observe these kids as they grow.
spending time at home and with my family.
letting go of the boundaries a bit too.
like letting marshall walk in the gutters so he could leave a trail of wet footprints:
and letting him pull me on our walk to target
and snuggle with my arm when he wants to be close
allowing him some quiet time to himself
getting what i can with gibson
getting in just one run this week
finding fun things for marshall and manny (the classroom mascot) to do together this weekend.
enjoying ice cream after saturday night service and letting him chat with a young couple who were all dressed up for their homecoming dance.
following the little one to whichever bouncehouse he wanted to at our church’s block party. and letting gibson go be with his friends.
being as happy as he was about this big slide after 20 times.
proud of his patience while waiting for his turn
getting back into the swing of #fmsphotoaday
embracing new trends
finding beauty in the sky
letting gibson go without a haircut for awhile.
loving this kid
giving marshall some game time
realizing the moon is still high in the sky when i’m driving to work
trying not to be upset that they forgot to put chick-fil-a sauce in my bag.
giving in to vending machine temptations
realizing that this kid is growing up quick
enjoying the magic that can happen with a few ice cube lyrics
getting back into the habit of a bible study before bed. #shereadstruth
happy that my folks LOVE the custom illustration i made for their fifth wheel.
and the joy of beginning a new illustration
catching sunrises on my way to work
pretending these are popcorn and chocolate
seeing some frost on the windshield
enjoying a peaceful run before the park gets full of soccer people
a long tall shadow in the early morning sun. morning runs are the best.
giving in to the new iOS 6. when they say 32 minutes, they actually meant 2 hours
looking forward to and thankful for actual fall temps. we had high 90s all last week to end september. it’s finally tolerable outside.
just my attempt to capture what i can of these semi-lazy weeks.
hope yours were more exciting than mine.
