When I went in to get Judah this morning, I wanted to capture the simple, everyday moment. I know how fast the time will go and I'll now longer be going in there to get him from his bed, with Paisley pulling herself down the hallway after me. When I opened his door today, the first thing he asked me was "What would you like to do today?". I told him that we were going to the beach with Sally, Noah and Levi. He was excited about that. I changed his clothes while he fussed about Paisley playing with his toys. It was just an ordinary morning but, the school buses driving by reminded me that someday, I'm going to miss this.
We had fun at the beach and while we were there playing, I tried to be in the moment and enjoy my children being young. I'm thankful that I get to stay home with them and I hope I can soak up all the moments of them being home full-time with me. I know that every age has it's benefits so, when it is our turn to be the "back to school" people, it will be very bitter-sweet. I will be proud of them and enjoy who they are becoming because I already am!
Here are just a few of my favorite photos from our morning at the beach:
Dancing and playing.
Clouds passing and sun peeking.
Deep and Wide singing.
