It was brought to my attention that I have not blogged in over a YEAR! I am afraid that I have fallen in to the trap of having missed so many wonderful amazing events that it is difficult to know where to start, and so I merely chose not to. My daughter gave me some great advice... just start with today. And so I do, I start with wonderful today... an ordinary day of trying to grow and learn and serve and do. Nothing really to report except that life is full and rich and wonderful. I spent a good part of the day in the garage organizing type and puttering in the want-to-be letterpress studio. I will take some pictures and share that sometime soon. I am basking in the glow of being part of a wonderful family. Some highlights of this week that I actually documented with photos are: the fourth grade Colonial Day! I got to slip into my mop cap (which was actually an old bonnet we had around that I cut the ties off of and wore backwards with the brim tucked in) and a long skirt and volunteer for the day at this wonderful festivity. I got to outline many many shadows of childrens profile's to make silloettes, watch fantastic dancing... Emily's dancing partner for the Virginia Reel is a sweet little girl in her class that has downs syndrome. Emily loves Hannah and Hannah loves Emily. The sheer joy on Hannah's face as they doe-se-doed is an image I hope to keep in my heart. I will include a pic of Em in her fabulous Colonial outfit that a kind friend loaned to us. I will also include a photo of Friday night papermaking with Emily and her friend Stephanie. They made some beautiful paper! It was a fun night. Well, cheers to blogging... to ordinary days made wonderful with the love of people and experience and to the highlights that bless us along the way!
