My kids are flippin' adorable. Seriously. We took the obligatory front porch shot:
|3rd Grade and Young 5's|
Nico was his usual self: ready for any kind of action...and a little miffed that he was going to have to wait one more day before he could ride the bus.
I realized very quickly that this very special morning was just about the best birthday gift ever. Why? It's hard watching your kids grow. I wish I could stop time at least 63 times a day. However, if watching them grow into kids who can lean into the world with grace, kindness, security, and confidence...well then I hope they grow to be 10 feet tall!
Sharing my 35th birthday with a momentous day for the kids wasn't so bad. In fact, it was pretty awesome.
And for this, I am thankful.
