chase you me?

even though owen doesnt ask "chase you, me?" anymore, he still demands chasing and being chased. whether its on the bike or just running, the kid does not stop. its great that i dont have a bump on the log, but there are times when i just want a quick rest. he has a new obsession with shooting guns, swinging swords, and playing dead. thank you neighbors. i was hoping to get at least another year of non-dying play, but boys will be boys, and at least there are no more monsters creeping in our house. they have all been blasted to smithereens.

painting the sun

spring is here and there is nothing like the feeling of painting outdoors. it's been so nice, off and on, that anytime we are able, we pull the table with all the watercolors we own out onto our back porch. somehow being out in the sun makes our little creations shine.

magical daddy

there is something so special
about them being together
they give each other so much joy
when the day is coming to a close
and i'm wiped out
owen and i are at the end of our ropes
daddy comes home
laughing finds it's home again


before we headed to orlando airport, we took a nice drive and ended up in celebration, fl. it's a disney community, complete with real live electric cars and a fabulous fountain, that owen completely enjoyed.

owen is a runner. he loves it and it is the one thing he always is in the mood to do. when b gets home from work, it is the first thing he asks him to do, "run, daddy" and they run, for at least a half hour, back and forth from the couch to the back door. yesterday they were playing in the backyard with "the girls" (our neighbors), running back and forth, racing.

it's 7:30am and because of daylight savings my boy is still sleeping. i heard him rustle a moment ago, but all is quiet now. there is a stillness in the morning right before he wakes, that many times i miss, that i truly enjoy. i can hear the birds welcoming the day and as i glance out my bedroom window i see a beautiful sunrise. albeit, the sunrise is not over mountains or an ocean, or even a lake. it's over our little neighborhood, the back alleyway. it glows just as bright and beckons me to enjoy just a bit more of where God has me in life.

a break

it has been far too long since i've updated this blog. i feel like we've just been caught up in the daily going on of life and there's not much to write about. my brain feels like it's just droning on and on. it's definitely the weather, right... blame it on the rain... isnt that the song? so, i cannot wait for spring and summer. i've been trying to take a lot of photos, but there's only so many i take before i feel like i'm hitting a creativity block.
