I’ve missed this space.
This space to write and share our adventures.
Like the one I went on with the little guy a couple of weeks ago when he had a day off from school.
We dropped baby girl off at school where he got to visit with all of his former teachers. It was just awesome to see him feel like such a big kid. He was confident, well spoken, and polite.
After that, we ventured high above the fog that was blanketing the valley down below.
He loves to climb and hang from things. His arms are so strong.
He also loves to observe and collect. A bobcat lives in this nature park, so we looked for her. We were talking a lot, so we never saw her, but we saw a lot of other beautiful sites, collected sticks, feathers, and leaves.
I got some awesome, dedicated one-on-one time to talk to him about what he likes, why he likes it, and what is important to him.
That’s important to me.
It was good morning.
Baby girl and I get our time together as well. She likes to go for stroller rides while I run. One of these days, I will miss pushing the double BOB.
We also talk and stop to look at the beauty that is fall.
Ryan got to have a special date night with baby girl when he took her to the school Octoberfest for the first time. The next morning when I took her to school she said, “Mom, last night was the best night ever.”
Halloween happened around here, too. I made all of our costumes…animals of the Pacific Northwest. The little guy and Ryan went as wolves, baby girl was a bat, and I was an owl.
And, now, it is officially the most wonderful time of the year.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday…I love the food, the football, the family. I love slowing down to just be.
My parents will be visiting us for a week over the holiday…I can’t wait. We have much to celebrate and give thanks for.
Stay tuned…I plan to share more in this space.
home is…what is important.
