He can read. He can write.

** Eeeek! I feel like it's been ages since I've blogged. Remember when I rebranded? (new logo, site overhaul, new look to the blog, etc...) Well, changes are comin' once again to the blog! Please be patient with me as I move things around over the next couple of weeks...) **

So. Remember this guy?? My kindergartner?

Well, suddenly, or not so suddenly {I'm not sure} he can read. He can write. He can make detailed drawings. He knows the Latin word for cold and lion and sun.

But mostly, he LOVES to write. He writes notes to his daddy and I when he is happy, when he's sad, when he's mad. Often we find a Noah height note on his bedroom door that says 'Closed' when he is busy playing. He tells me when he grows up he will write books. I love it.

Recently, he wrote a little book. It was a book about a brother and sister monkey, and their terribly messy room. {Imagine!!} With my help, he stapled it together, and he also illustrated it. Other children can actually check it out from their library at his school. How cute is that?

Noah, I love you, and I hope that someday you grow up and write many books. Dedicate one to your ole' mom, won't you?

Will you be mine? {Valentine}

“If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.” ~A.A. Milne

This was the picture I sent out on our Valentines last year. (The weather would NOT cooperate for one this year!) Happy Love Day everybody.

All you need is... (edit)

Don't you hear it? she asked...

& I shook my head no & then she started to dance...

& suddenly there was music everywhere & it went on for a very long time & when I finally found words all I could say was thank you.
