The best moments in life...

...are often times the simple ones.

Like...


Watching your kids grow up from one spring to the next. Last year, he was learning to drive his tractor. This year, it's scooters and bikes and asking Daddy questions about how to grill while watching our supper cook.

Last year Brandon was just trying to get his footing - a new walker and completely unsure of his boundries.



...This year it's -- well -- trying to do everything his big brother does.


...Little moments...

Like watching your husband and son play tball together. A dream as a young girl brought to life right before my eyes. Jaden's interest in all things sports is blossoming. All of the sudden he is loving practicing soccer, tball and basketball. He asks me questions about the games we watch on TV. I can't wait to watch him learn every Panther basketball player's name and jersey number... just like his mommy did. ;)




 
...Little moments...
Like eating an evening snack on the deck with your little ones. Watching Brandon point at the planes in the sky... "Mama, Mama!!" ...perfect weather... happy kids... simple pleasures.






 
...Little moments...

Like cleaning up the kitchen after supper and coming outside to find your three boys gathered around the bird feeders. I'm not sure what they were talking about, but I was sure to stay far behind so as not to interrupt the moment.

 

...Little moments like this...

that really aren't so little.
