But, in true Britton fashion, we've managed to travel a bit in between the hard times. Spring is upon us, and the property is alive. Chris has a new toy/hobby/desert truck which is keeping him busy between work and school and the kids and property and me. I'm like a puppy when he is at home. What do you want to do? Let's hang out! Let's do this and that and this and that. He's pretty content relaxing in his little bits of downtime. I need to remember that.
Owen is at the tail end of his Kindergarten year. His sight words are at the third grade level but he somehow can't remember where his shoes are. He knows 18 types of sharks but still asks for us to help him wipe his butt. Seriously, kid!!!
Arabelle has started dance class once a week with Zoey. Her daddy takes her while I'm at work and she is having a blast. A more typical developing child (in comparison to Owen), she challenges me almost daily with her strong will and determination. Gotta love toddler opinions!
I'm really enjoying our life. The recent events have only highlighted the brevity of life. We may only have today! This has slowed me down a bit... I'll always want more time in the day, but have lately been relishing the downtime, the tea drinking, the sitting, the reading.
And now a brief photo collection of the last few months! This really isn't fair as you know I take hundreds of photos. Also, still having computer issues from (likely) having too many photos on our hard drive... OOPS!
hiking with friends and kids
Fun run for Owen's school! He did the ~2 miles this time without much complaining!
More cousin time in the car!
As I selected a few photos to summarize the past few months I chuckled as they were uploading-- 72 pictures! And I've missed out on so many fun times to boot! That was a snippet. Cheers to (sometime) finishing my previous drafts, and a bit more frequent stopping in here. I miss it. Thanks for reading!
