Simple Days

posted on: Tuesday, October 23, 2012

The past two weeks have included me getting a hardcore flu (the worst with a newborn), legit, chilly fall weather, lots of finger painting projects for Kael at school, plus his first train ride with friends and lots of new smiles from Cedar. I've started writing music again (which makes me feel extra alive).  I'm about to start a new book study with some girls at church and C has consistently been sleeping through the night (making a very sane and happy momma). I really have been looking into my heart lately, holding onto simple love and acknowledging the areas in my soul that have grown and the parts that still need hope and grace. There's beauty in the good and grace in and for everything else.  

Gimme those cheeks.

This right here is a like having a date with myself. Every month this is responsible for an extra smile on my face.
We just started the chapter of saying goodbye to paci. (prayers are appreciated.) ;)
Every morning, Kael asks to watch his tiger show from Animal Planet. Raaaaawr.
One nook of the boys' room.
Pretty much Sam's candy for our sick days.
If you want to be cool in Charlotte, pumpkin spice everything from Trader Joes. 
My favorite treat of the season, local honey crisp apples. 
At least 2-3 bananas a day.
Cows and horses have been a must all week. In the car, Kael's collection of "moo-moos" must come with us of course.
This box holds all of Kael's flash cards. He has a  daily ritual of going through all of them. 
First item I ever bought for my house, for once we got married. A trumpet from the 1940's in Israel. Found it at a little antique shop in Jerusalem. 
My flirt.
