Well, my friends....It's been a while. A year? Nearly? I'd say that's long enough, wouldn't you?
I thought I'd break my silence with these cute things Abram (3) has been doing/saying lately:
-I've been singing songs to the two little kids to help them learn to spell their names (Boo already knows but won't be left out). Here's Gooey's: "A-B-R-A-M that spells Aaaaaabram with no ham." But I caught him singing "B-R-Y-N-N-E that spells Boo-Boo with no ham."
-Mom, I'm big...and you're cute (that one's my fav)
Here's a pic of the little guy to get your heart good and melty.
A little family outing on an urban hike. It was fun and the kids did great. We got to the top then Jonah, Ava, and I (Elisabeth) ran 2.5 miles back to the car to drive up and get the other three. The big kids were troopers and I was thinking the entire time as we ran about how fun it is to have older kids as well as young ones. How fun it is to laugh with and raise kids I enjoy being around. How I, like Mary, will treasure up all these things in my heart. How it's days like this one that make the hard ones worth having. It's true: children are a blessing.
