11.26.12 :: grateful for the little remote in my hand. It disappeared for awhile and now it is back in my hands. Love using it for self portraits. 11.27.12 :: grateful for this little helper. This holiday season will be fun. 11.28.12 :: grateful for moments like these. He was telling his bear about the [...]
11.23.12 :: grateful for these two. They played so well with Samuel — fully partaking in everything that Samuel insisted. I mean, who could resist a sweet voice calling out, “come on, guys.” 11.24.12 :: grateful for this white horse. He’s been studying and admiring horses for months and has had a couple of opportunities [...]
Having this past week off gave me an opportunity to catch up on Project Life. As of today, I am completely up to date … with this year’s album, that is. Last year’s album still has plenty of holes … but I’m not going to stress out about it. I really tried to cut down [...]
Today, I have so many things to be grateful for. Grateful for my health. Samuel and I were out with 27,300 other people to Run to Feed the Hungry. It has become our Thanksgiving morning tradition. Grateful for beautiful weather. Last year we ran in the rain. Grateful for this face — the smile and [...]
11.20.12 :: grateful for our colorful neighborhood. Samuel and I really enjoy walking/riding through our neighborhood kicking the leaves, picking up leaves and acorns, and enjoying the cool breeze on our faces. 11.21.12 :: grateful for these women (and all of the other women in my life). Thank you for filling my heart with so [...]
11.17.12 :: grateful for this active and babbling young lad. He doesn’t seem to ever run out of energy. He is talking a ton — stuff like, love you mama, thank you dada (without prompting), bye-bye house, nice horse (while petting his stuffed horse), and more apple please. I love him at this stage (and [...]
11.14.12 :: grateful for his patience. His chill attitude. His willingness for an adventure. His silliness. Grateful for sunny afternoons. Grateful for mama + samuel date on Wednesdays. 11.15.12 :: grateful for holiday song books (current favorite is Jingle Bells and Frosty the Snowman) and the Learning Tower. It puts him at counter height so [...]
11.11.12 :: grateful for this beautiful lady. 11.12.12 :: grateful for play dates with these lovely mamas & their sweet toddlers. 11.13.12 :: grateful for evening dance parties with an energetic and adorable young lad.
11.08.12 :: grateful for his love of reading. 11.09.12 :: grateful for fall weather. It’s about time. 11.10.12 :: grateful for a fun morning with him. Photo by Kira Lauren Photography.
I am retiring. Retiring from Halloween Spooktacular, that is … at least for the time being. I have done it for five years. Prior to having Samuel, my life was about work — about finding interesting things to bring into the classroom to pique the curiosity of my students, generate interest and stimulate young minds. [...]
