It’s The Little Moments

I have decided that it might be a nice addition to our blog to just share snippets of our lives, those little moments that make such a difference.

October and November was filled with much time with friends and some beautiful milestones.

It’s been awhile but only because we’ve been so busy “living our lives to the fullest”.

Since the turn of the new year, here are a few of our most memorable, most meaningful of moments~

January to September 2015

The absolute kismet meeting of the beautiful family that would buy our home, saying goodbye to New York, a family road trip to North Carolina, time on the lake, embracing our new home in the trees, volunteering in our new community and making new friends.

(stay tuned for my collage in the making)

A cold Decmber night . . . Cabin Fever starting in. So why not? A bit of late night paper-making fun together (with Eastern-European rap music as your soundtrack). Just a typical night in our household.

October 2014~ Trystan crashed in the living room for the night and awoke to this surprise. shortly after awakening received this surprise. It means so much and we are so grateful to provide for our kids' passions.

grounding
8/20/14~It was such a beautiful day yesterday and though there were things in the house, I could argue with myself needed to be attended to, I said NO to them and YES to a little afternoon time with my kiddos. Nothing fancy, just a walk to a local park near our home and some downtime and discussion in the grass. And when it was done, I felt so renewed and ready to return home, with an enthusiastic and hopeful attitude, to tackle the tasks I had left behind. Little moments that make such the difference. I captured this one and when I took a look at it, the words of my dear friend ran through my mind . . . “This is the only grounding my children will ever know” ~Dayna Martin #freekids #unschoolersrock #unschooling Might I also add: I am so grateful to have my kids with me all day, every day when so many parents do not have that option. 🙂
8/10/14~Center of Zen- while on the beach in New Hampshire, Trystan took it upon himself to make his own little center of Zen. And after, he took a short walk to an area with some boulders where he chose one, sat atop it and spent some time in meditation. I snuck up and snapped a shot. I love how connected my kids are with nature and the oneness of everything. It's something I didn't have until my adult years. I am so grateful that even from a young age, they have had that; that our life affords them that.
