We began our official launch of preschool this Fall. Last year we enjoyed many school like activities, but this year we're beginning to have a somewhat normal preschool routine in our home. He thinks it's great that he gets to go to school, even though it simply means pulling out our school table, chair and supplies. It's such a delight to watch him take it all in and desire to learn and grow each day! I love that I get to be his teacher! What a gift it is to be home with him each and every day!
We have been enjoying many activities lately. The weather is changing and we both LOVE watching the leaves fall from the trees as we embrace wonderful Fall!

We are always going.
It may be an outing;
The grocery store.
The park, a friend's house, church.
Each day passes.
Take each one.
For time continues.
It is precious.
I am humbled.
To be his mama.

i have been eagerly anticipating each new lent reading. it's amazing the things that i thought i understood about Christ to which i truly didn't have any insight.
lent means springtime -- a joyous season.
that's my heart's desire; to live joyfully.
i'm challenged by this because so often i'm selfish in too many ways.
to understand just a teensy bit more about Christ's suffering while reading and practicing the act of forgiveness i'm finding growth -- this new springtime in my own life. i love that!
to grow and be challenged. may my God continue to lead me down this road. i want to grow, i want to understand my loving Savior that much more so that i may be able to share Him with ALL that i meet.
today i'm grateful for this season -- a season of dying to self and placing others before me.
i will choose to sing...pray...expect little...find beauty all around me and drink in how BIG and LOVING and KIND and FORGIVING my God is!
be blessed today friends!

I simply wish I had more time for it.
I'm not sure where time goes. I imagine it's all the 'other' things I choose to fill it with. Playing time with my boy seems to fill most of my everyday. I'm so thankful for that!
Today we were able to take daddy to coffee. Those are the moments I desire to soak up and not ever underestimate its value in our lives. I love that I'm home and can take daddy to coffee and am not worried about how dinner, bath time and bedtime will happen after a crazy day.
This life -- all that it is filled with, causes me to pause and appreciate...
It's good! I'm grateful and oh so blessed!
