We've had a busy time since Owen was born. Visitors and visiting, traveling and returning, sick and recovering, planning and prepping, packing and unpacking... and trying to find a schedule, routine, rhythm for our life with three children!
I had a line from a book I read in college taped up on my wall "...on the verge of a great adventure!" That seemed to me then the happiest place to be in life. These days I often feel like we are in a constant state of adventure, and waiting hopefully, expectantly, quite possibly foolishly :) for the slower days to come -- 'on the verge of a great calm'.
But we sure are enjoying the sweet little moments of these busy days.
Like the happy smiles and giggles from this little guy -The energy and enthusiasm and great ideas and questions and discoveries from Landon
And the ever-learning, do things in her own way, precious sweetness of Ellie. My mornings spent with Ellie this week have helped me slow down, focus, enjoy.
