i feel like it should come as no surprise that this will be my last post here on this little blog.
as i make my list of things i wish to take into the new year along with things i wish to create, on the side of letting go and leaving behind is this little blog. i just don't have the heart for it any longer and i am ready to move on. in many ways i feel to old for blogging as if i have outgrown it somehow. i am not sure how i will continue to document the boys. at the moment i am testing out smugmug, which has a lovely aesthetic to it.
with scout now freshly past turning one, i am beginning to feel the "lift" and can now leave him for more then an hour or two. there is now a small opening for nurturing myself once again. weekends can now include energy healing courses, health seminars, and yoga. i have my eyes set on a new nikon and i am already sighed up for a photography course to help me dig a bit deeper into my own photography style. i am beyond excited about all the potential captures.
michael is still looking for work but something interesting seems to be in the works. i hope something happens soon as his projects in the garage are even wearing me out. having him home so much has presented itself as quite the challenge for me. i am ashamed to say i am not handling it well and he is handling it much better.
quinn is getting older, funnier, and slightly more mature. he will enter year 3 at the end of january where he will have a male teacher for the very first time. he is completely thrilled by the thought of this. he hasn't found a best friend or a circle of friends he really enjoys at the school ,just yet, but he has been placed in a classroom with a calmer set of boys...fingers crossed. he continues to play baseball year round which means a lot of driving and dedication from the entire family. it's his thing and he wouldn't be the same quinny without it.
tate is crazy independent these days. i feel as though i never have to worry about him as he always seems to naturally be put into the best situations. he had such an amazing group of boys in his class this past year and his teacher thought so too as she has kept them all together as they move into year one, which is very unusual. i really like the parents so i am happy about it too. he is following quinn's lead with baseball and loves it just as much, although he has requested to play footy or basketball come winter. this is when the family will begin to get split up on the weekends.
scout somehow grew from the sweetest little thing to the cheekiest little thing. he is by far my feistiest baby, very determined, but can also be divinely calm and beautiful. no matter what mood he is in we're all completely fascinated with him, and we all agree that there is nothing better then having a baby scout crawling about the house.
we have some travel plans for 2014. a long weekend in tasmania just when it's hard to tell where summer ends and autumn begins. then right in the middle of the school year we will slip away on a jet plane headed home…hawaii home. we will spend some time on maui (our old stomping ground) before a relaxing break on kauai. i have no doubt that it will be an interesting journey for our spirits.
thank you for visiting us and leaving such kind pieces of yourself here. you have been incredibly gracious and it has been a pleasure getting to know you. i feel very blessed to have had you visit.
i leave with a light, yet full, heart.
