“A portrait of my children once a week, every week, in 2014.”

Lillia: You’ve been very physically affectionate this week, and I have no complaints. Someone pointed out to me once that, unless they have a significant other, most tweens and teens experience very little in the way of physical contact with others. That makes me really sad! I have made it my goal to hug you as often as you will let me.

Zane: It is FINALLY warming up, and we are starting to spend more time outside. You are very, very excited about all of the birds that have returned. You’ve already figured out that spring birds = nests = eggs = baby birds, and there is nothing you love more than nests, eggs, and baby birds! In fact, I often find you pretending that YOU are a mother bird. There is a part of you that is incredibly nurturing; someday you’ll be a great dad.

      Thank you for the tip, Summer! The Harris Center is totally not on my radar. I see they have homeschool programs, too. I wish I had known that last year. Hope all is well with you & yours!
