this is the childhood i always dreamed of for my children. weekends spent on my grandparents farm. this weekend was perfect, full of hammock swings, creek exploring, learning to fish, and just play. there's something about the pace at the farm and the freedom my children feel here that makes us all the best version of ourselves.

i was cooking dinner saturday night and looked out the window to catch e in her fairy dress picking "flowers" (weeds) from the yard. i love watching my children interact with their world and i love that i get a front row seat to observe where they find beauty. there is currently a bouquet of weeds on my dining room table.

eleanor finished her first year of pre-k today. what a year it has been! she's wearing nightgowns to bed now, she asks for scented lotion after her bath, has her own chapstick, she sounds out words, can recognize nearly the entire alphabet and numbers, and has graduated to drawing pictures of actual things. and just for juxtaposition and because as her mama i sometimes miss my baby girl, i rocked her to sleep tonight.

f: this kid and his donut with "spwinkewls". i swear we couldn't get to the park fast enough for him to tear into it and then when he sat in front of it he just stared adoringly for a few minutes before diving in. he kills me.

e: my girl has outgrown the swings. she is looking so much bigger and older to me lately.
