5.10.10 Celebrating Sawyer’s Second Birthday

May 10, 2010

8:40 PM Hunter reflecting on the day: “We spent ALL our day having fun!”

No school.
No work.
Just a day planned together.

Far too many days are spent being ruled by a schedule.   There is always somewhere to be and a time you need to be there by.

Far too often I find myself saying no to something my kids ask because that is easier.

Not today.

Today we had a plan, but it was flexible.  We had an agenda, but it was simply to have fun together.

What’s that Hunter?  You want to stop at Super 1 Foods and get some
sourdough bread?  Okay, lets do that!  Hey, lets get some candy while we
are there!

Lets draw some pictures for your brother Sawyer, and float them up to the sky in balloons!

We should probably have lunch at Red Robin so we can get some free balloons!

Oh wait!  These pictures are heavy; we are going to need to get more
balloons (lets send Hunter back into Red Robin to ask for more)!

Count our blessings.

There are a few advantages to taking the journey into the shadow of death.  One is that you can appreciate the light more deeply than ever before.

We want to offer our heartfelt thanks to all the support you have shown us during this last week.  Your prayers, emails, calls and letters have given us encouragement and humbled us.  We truly are not in this journey alone.  Thank you for walking with us.

Mom 4 Life. Now that Ashley owns Mom 4 Life, I am focusing my energies in homeschooling and asking God to use me in other areas.
