“a weekly portrait of my children in 2014” — (a little behind)
liam // you are learning so many things right now about the importance of details, of taking care of the little things. Sometimes this lesson is hidden in a math equation or a relational squabble, and other times you are learning this in your help around the house and yard. I love watching you grow in this way.
burke // as you all played in the rain this week, you stood in the yard, soaked with spring rain, growing like our bamboo stalks.
blythe // the days are growing warmer, and soon I will miss your gifts of wild blooms picked from nearby fields and yards.
olive // you told me this week, “See! I’m brushing my bangs to the side so everyone can see my eyes when I talk.”
