Eugene - Going Green

Today the sun shone upon us and I noticed that even now, in January, the buds from my backyard Rhodies are preparing for their fruitful arrival this Spring.

I love living in Eugene.

Feelin' the Love

When I saw this going on today I had to hurry to my nearby camera. Can't you just feel the love this little boy has for his sister? It does a mama's heart oh-so-good.

Colson earned best-big-brother award today. He cheered Lewis on as he is undertaking the great task of learning to conduct himself without diapers. He shared all of his food with Caroline who always likes to snack on everyone else's food. He srceamed for us when Caroline was climbing up his ladder to his bunk-bed and he shared his toys willingly with his little brother.

wow, what a good, blessed day. Who knows what kind of squabbles and sins tomorrow will bring, but today I'll be thankful for today.

Colson Quotes on which I sigh "ooooh Brother"

DSC_0040

When you are educating a 5-year-old there are some interesting comments and ideas that are expressed:

Colson: Maybe when Rembrandt dies I will be the one that will be the great and famous artist.

-------

Colson: Here, I'll just try to read this part with my eyes closed.

(oh brother)

-------

Me: Colson can you please pick up those crumbs you dropped.

Colson: Maybe at night mouses can eat those. We don't want to be messing with crumbs.

I love living in this kind of light

We get the most glorious light coming into our home. It's just what I need during these gray Oregon winters. The way it bounces all through my dining area and through the living room and onto the page of a good book makes my heart cheery.

things i love: natural light and a good book

Emerging From Hibernation

We've been battling sickness around here. So far, the Lord has spared me. I'm so thankful that I have been able to be on two feet for the rest of the tribe around here. I think we're definitely on the up and up. I'm thankful.
