Embracing life

You are worried about seeing him spend his early years in doing nothing.  What!  Is it nothing to be happy?  Nothing to skip, play, and run around all day long?  Never in his life will he be so busy again.  ~Jean-Jacques Rousseauswimming July 2 09 007 ps final

While we try to teach our children all about life,
Our children teach us what life is all about.

There are no seven wonders of the world in the eyes of a child.  There are seven million.  ~Walt StreightiffVBS July 1 09 003 ps bright

Hope all is going well! Sorry I havent been by in a while, but this summer has just been crazy, one thing after another. Now we have the dog with a broken leg.

Have a great week!

I am so happy that I am not the only one that think that way! Kids grow up way too fast. Let them be happy and have fun while they can!
