the highlights

I'm so grateful for a wonderful husband who is also an amazing Dad!  Whenever Larry comes home, the kids run to him with open arms... "Daddy, Daddy, Daddy!" and thus the fun, playing, tickling, laughing, running and squealing begin!  I love the way Larry loves Catherine and Ethan and I love the way they love him.  Every moment I have with the three of them make up the highlights of my life.

Potato Feast!

There is something wonderfully fulfilling about growing a garden... cultivating it, tending to it and watching it grow and produce fruit.  

We have planted two tomato plants, two bell pepper plants, several yellow squash and cucumber. We seeded zucchini plants, onions, carrots and potatoes.  The potatoes were last to be planted and last to sprout.  We have anxiously awaited the first sprout, and on March 12th, five days ago to our surprise we had 3!  The next morning, the 13th,  there were 8... and that afternoon there were 11!   Three days ago, on the 14th, there were 14 potato plants!  Yesterday there were 23 potato plants!  

We are soo excited!  It looks like we'll be eating a LOT of potatoes soon!  We'll let you know when we'll be having our potato salad feast and barbeque!  You're ALL invited!

I love the way a photo or video clip can take me back in time... not just a memory as a list of events that transpired... rather an experience that envelops me in the sights, feelings, smells, sounds and emotions of the whole experience all over again. It gives me courage when times are tough... pushing forward in that hope of what's to come... My inspiration as I rest and wait for our new baby to come...

My inspiration for after the baby's born... being ACTIVE again!
My inspiration to be more patient with and show more compassion and love toward the kids:

My inspiration to laugh more and just let kids be kids:

My inspiration to make them laugh:

My inspiration to go back to Hawaii, often:

My inspiration to take on fewer projects and play more with the kids:

What inspires you?
