You guys! I’m so sorry I’ve been so absent lately. Life has been so busy and with spring break finally here I feel like I can take a few deep breaths, read a book and get a few things done. DI (Destination Imagination) is something Graham loves to participate in every year. Do you like his “man in the moon” costume he created. Pretty clever if you ask me. That kid is full of creativity and I love to listen to his stories.
Davis, being the explorer that he is, decided that enough was enough during that very long competition day and we set off exploring. We found a crane, cool art and 2 bridges. I love his spirit of taking in all that is around him. He truly has a heart to understand others and is my social butterfly. Learning his energy is something that changes every day. I try my best to keep up!
Live in a place as gorgeous as WNC and you have things like the Biltmore Estate at your finger tips. The other photos were taken at a local community college. We are surrounded by beauty! However, take two little boys to the Biltmore for an afternoon of sun and what do you end up with? 2 Nehi’s and a lot of staring at construction equipment. Barnyard? No. Playground. For a minute. Ice cream. Maybe. Want to look at the construction going on. ALL. DAY.
I guess I am reminded every day that just when I think I have it all figured out with my kids, something changes. It’s like we are constantly doing this dance of learning each other. Working with teens and their parents in the school only goes to solidify my point. We are all changing beings. “What can I do to help them. What else can we do about this situation?” These are questions I am asked constantly. I believe it all boils down to LOVE THEM. Really love them by supporting, listening, playing, and offering boundaries. Let’s face it, raising kids is not easy and there will be new and added pressures in each season of life. All we can do is try out best to love, point them towards Jesus and then faithfully let them fly on their own.
Love you guys!
