where in the world do the moments i so deeply desire to write about go?
i'm not sure what happens with my 24 hours each day, but somehow regularly i'm feeling as though i was jipped in the hours per day department. i'm sure many of you feel this way all too often.
that's where i sit currently.
the things to get done only daily increase, the moments i was hoping to "get that done" seem to decrease...this life i have is blessed even when i don't get to everything i was hoping to.
spending time with my family trumps all and i'm completely ok with that!
Here are some of those moments that I was hoping to have all the eloquent words to blog about...the words will be missing, but the photos completely present. We enjoyed an evening with friends this week and I noted that Josh gets cake because of Amanda's desire to learn more about cake decorating and baking. I jokingly told Eric that he gets photos; lots and lots of photos. It's not edible, but it's capturing those memories. Sorry Eric!
We spent last Wednesday dying eggs with Josh and Amanda. Nash loved his first egg encounter. He was a bit confused as to why he couldn't throw the eggs like a ball. Dad was most hesitant as dye covered the table and Nash's hand hung out with the color orange all night. I got what I wanted; moments captured digitally. I don't remember dying eggs as a little one, so I want to make sure that Nash gets the full experience that he should receive. It was fabulous!
See an egg, grab it and throw in basket...repeat until all eggs have been acounted for. (smart boy this one!)
There was a memory game attached to the box of dye for the eggs. I didn't know if Nash would understand what to do or not, so I cut the cards out and introduced him to the game. I left all the cards face up hoping he could simply make the matches. He could. I was somewhat surprised, but delighted that he knew what to do. We've been enjoying a game of memory each day since. He likes to pair the cards up and of course I'm delighted that he understands the concept!
