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

Lillia: This morning (Saturday), you asked your dad why he was still at home. As he aptly noted you are obviously in full-on summer vacation mode — you don’t even know what day of the week it is! You’ve spent a ton of time at the pool, and also you’ve been planning on doing some sort of summer shape-up by jogging around the block. We discussed how little kids stay in shape without difficulty, but that it is harder the older you get to stay active. Although I sometimes miss your younger years, I think it is pretty neat that we can talk about all kinds of interesting things now that you are older. I hope you keep talking to me as you enter your later tween years. I’m always here if you want to chat, and I promise I will try to be a good listener.

Zane: Your new backpack arrived this week and you were so excited to try it on. I have to admit that seeing you wearing it kind of depresses me but I’ll get over it (eventually). I’m so glad that you are excited about preschool, and I know you will have a blast. You’ve been helping me do all kinds of things around the house this week: we’ve made bread; watered and tended our garden; picked berries; and we even made our very first pie! I love having you as my little shadow.
