"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week in 2013"

Linen Ruth: Stealing away to enjoy breakfast alone, at late morning.

Jonavon Philip, "Pip": Caught this contemplative stare, while sinking into bed sharing Papa's last few minutes of birthday sleep-in.

Sharing dreams. Sharing thoughts. Families share more than we'd ever like to think or dream of.  Sharing my children with you!!! I can honestly say, of all the accomplishments, all the experiences; I am more proud of them than anything. Hah! Who am I kidding?? They have me wrapped around their little fingers! Pip and I are working on reading this morning. 5 minutes ago, conversation goes...

Me: "Pip, you'll have to do what I'm saying, if you want to learn to read. I'm like your teacher."

Pip: "Mom. You are my servant."

- with a completely serious face, as if he's enlightening me. No, Pip, I've known this.


  1. it's those quiet little moments that stay with you, isn't it? love these both :)
