close by.

banana bread. cold milk. a leisurely space to sit down to an early morning snack with my littles.

(and glancing over these photos, i realized they actually do chew with their mouths closed. miraculous.)

also this morning we've done microscopes and hallway basketball and memory and four-square and 'cooking show' and skeleton building and apples with peanut butter. i fiercely love my kids, but also? i really like them. i adore having them close all day.

we should do this spring break thing more often.

visit chatting at the sky for more 'flowers in the cracks,' finding the small miracles in ordinary days.

How awesome that you wrote about loving AND liking your kids today. And I wrote about God loving AND liking HIS kids today. :) Blessings to you. You've inspired me to create some true enjoyment for my soon-to-be spring-breaker. Thank you.

Emma went back to school after two weeks at home on break and I thought it would be bittersweet but mostly it was bitter. A little tear in our family each day that doesn't heal till the weekend...

Well said. We will always love our children, no matter what. But liking them...that's a true gift for everyone.

I homeschool my boys and I feel the same way. It's such a blessing to spend so much time with them. They bring out the best in me! :)
