In 2016 I'm attempting to do #52weeksofstorytelling with a different theme each week.
Week 20/52 - Connection
It's so fun watching my girls connect as sisters and friends. We've built our family culture around music and books and adventure, but sometimes the connection happens in ways we wouldn't expect. This past week my youngest daughter used her saved $ to buy rollerblades. My older daughter tried them out and decided to use her saved $ to buy a pair as well. They have spent hours rollerblading in the garage and driveway. They turn on music and create routines. I love hearing the laughter even more than I love the quiet house! I took this pic when I found them lying in the green space next to our house...they were exhausted and resting, laughing and talking. I don't know how long this phase will last, but in my opinion, they've already gotten their money's worth out of this experience. Someday I'll say, "do you remember when you and your sister turned our garage into a roller rink?"
Right now my garden is just beautiful...the right amount of sunshine and rain and it's a happy place to be. I love taking walks around my yard to see what's blooming and how things are growing. It really brings me so much joy.
frogs, ducks, flowers
waterfalls, snails, views
these are the random little things that make my days beautiful
more macro goodness from my backyard
(except the sea anemone...that would be from the sea)
