Letting your child be...well who he is!

This represents so much of who Jack is...a builder, creator or many wonderful things. Lately he has been designing his own lego and hoping to create this at home.

What I have learned again (I am always learning) is simply that Jack is his own person with unque gifts that God has designed just for HIS glory! Like this lego, the design had a purpose. Jack created this and God enabled Jack to be this creative person.

What I love about homeschooling is that when I do stop to allow mornings to be lego mornings and outdoor play he is full of JOY! Don't get me wrong, fractions are there to digest as well...but I love the balance and the lack of stress to allow him to be free to be who he is!

Aah Jack, I love ya!!!!

Looking through his eyes....

When you take the time to look through his eyes the world turns a different colour. I see things that I missed. I notice things of a unique colour. I open my eyes to his world. That is when you can hold the heart of your child and say I love you in a precious way.

Aah the  memories of warmth together.

precious girls...I think one of my fav pics ever of the girls together!

She grew up on this trip...I watched and marveled at how God is changing her into a beautiful young woman!
She could have slept on the lounge chair on the beach. So... we brought the cushion inside and put it by our bed! She was happy....

                                 We met Sean the dolphin and wow what can I say...he was beautiful....

Oh Jack the playful one just soaking up the sun and water!

We loved our time away and so thankful for our amazing time away together!
