Right now. I am:
::taking a break from posting about our wonderful trip to Vermont last weekend to share some beautiful photos of our day today.
::thinking there is nothing like learning the letter b by making clothespin butterflies!
::still smiling every time I walk by the beautiful wet on wet watercolor paintings Grace and I made together yesterday.
::loving how we have settled into our autumn rhythm and are enjoing the adventures (or mellowness) that each day brings.
::happy that Dave is on vacation this week and is able to be a part of the parts of our day that he is not usually around for.
::looking forward to enjoying lots of delicious applesauce (and other things that we have canned) this winter. It will certainly be a nice reminder of things to come when the ground is blanketed in white.
::honored to get to be present for so much more of the girls lives than I would if they were traditionally schooled littles. Being able to watch them soar to new hights each day is, quite simply, the best!
::grateful to have such wise friends (practicing bike riding on the empty deck is just brilliant! Thanks, Sarah!)!
::in awe of the way things work out.
::thinking we shoulda had a third child. We made a pretty awesome family of five this evening!
::ending lots of happy thoughts, heart beams and sweet dreams to our buddy Owen for a speedy recovery (and for a good night sleep for everyone)!
