And, Seth’s hair. He’s keeping it long even though he now gets mistaken for a girl regularly and hates that. (I can’t tell you how many times he got called “princess” at Disney.)
He’s true to himself.
(Oh my goodness, and the way that manipulating depth of field in photography can result in a sink full of dishes and a cluttered countertop being a mere blur in the background of a photo.)
The countdown to Larkspur’s fourth birthday. Four is the best age. The funniest age in my opinion. Gift wise, I keep it simple, as Lark is easily overwhelmed. We are simple folks when it comes to birthdays anyway. This year there will be a couple of books, a doll quilt, a handmade dress, and sweater.All your sweet words in response to my last post were so appreciated. Thank you so much. I don’t feel like quite such an alien anymore. I realize that what I have been doing is very natural given what we have been through as a family and I think I will be getting back out into the world a bit more soon. We are not necessarily doubting that God will do the best for us; we are wondering how painful the best will turn out to be. — C.S. Lewis
Finally, I’ll leave you with this lovely quote that was left in a comment by Seth’s dear former Montessori teacher:
“Nothing you do for children is ever wasted”
I am taking that to heart. Thank you.
