Oh What a Beautiful Morning

It was the first really beautiful day in over a week. The sun was beaming down from the sky early in the morning and we found ourselves inspired to get out of the house and breathe that sunshine in. The boys and I called my sister and asked her to bring Makena and meet us […]

Rock on. I have been feeling the love and joy of it all in it’s most simplest forms lately too. I love this life of ours.-K

I wonder if it’s something about spring? you know, everything around us is in re-birth, maybe we experience it, too.

I’ve been thinking it was due to spring as well, this feeling that i share with you and that you articulated so beautifully.

What a great morning you had! I love those moments when of joy that come when realizing how lucky we are to be with our children and they are not stuck in a classroom. Think of all we would miss! You said it so well. :)

Now matter what I’ve done I can’t get them as colorful as hers!!

That said, I love these pics of my boys, too. They really hate posing for me. :) I have to take what I can get!

A Book Review and Lessons Learned

This holiday weekend was spent hanging out with family, catching up on housework, and reading A.S. Neill’s book, Freedom – Not License. It was interesting to read a book, written over 40 years ago on a topic that even by today’s standards seems avant garde. I cannot imagine what the reaction was when this book […]
