It Started Here...

and ended here.

this day is fantastic. and i want to hold on to it and relive it over and over and over again. 

highlights of today are:

coming to the realization that dune and lars are bonded in ways i will never even begin to understand. 

watching dune and lars in the library look so tiny against the giant world of books.

going outside where dune picked a piece of bark off of a tree that looked just like a mask and lars and i watched him hold it up to his face like it was one for the next hour. 

finding an abandoned building and picking the boys up to peek into it and hearing them squeal when they saw inside. 

driving down Grand Street and loving the gold leaves falling onto the brick streets. 

coming home and snuggling with my very tired boys before tucking them in for their nap.

waiting to meet my girl at the bus stop and hanging out with her until Monday morning, because it's Friday!

- have a happy, blessed weekend. we are off to discover something new!

Hello Autumn.

i took dune and lars to a farm the other day and had just about the most fun with them that i've ever had with anyone! these boys of mine are such a gift. really, how would life look if i didn't know them? i shudder to think. the sky was as blue as i have ever seen, and it was cold, and i was happy. i was so, so happy. and they were too. i miss graycen when she is at school, but i've done all of these things with her. before dune and lars came, she was an only child and we were the best of buddies. i saw the world through her eyes and took her everywhere. now her life is in a different season. she's a big sister, and she's in kindergarten. and she has stories of her own to tell. but the best part of this dynamic is that she understands it. when i showed her the pictures from our day at the pumpkin patch she said, "Oh, it looks like you guys had so much fun!" now that's a great amount of maturity from my little girl. they are all gifts, and huge blessings to me. God gave me them to help greater my understanding of how achingly in love with someone i can be. someone bore from my own body. much like the closeness i was created for with a God who loves me. i'm getting it. and i'm so very thankful for it.
