My inspiration for this record of my days:

“The biggest mistake I made [as a parent] is the one that most of us make. . . . I did not live in the moment enough. This is particularly clear now that the moment is gone, captured only in photographs. There is one picture of [my three children] sitting in the grass on a quilt in the shadow of the swing set on a summer day, ages six, four, and one. And I wish I could remember what we ate, and what we talked about, and how they sounded, and how they looked when they slept that night. I wish I had not been in such a hurry to get on to the next thing: dinner, bath, book, bed. I wish I had treasured the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less” -Anna Quindlen

Heart Attack

For FHE last night we “heart attacked” our kitchen. I got the idea from Shawni, a girl who has no idea who I am, or that I stalk her blog.


Here’s the idea: everybody make a heart for each member of the family. You write something that you love about that person, and then we hang them all over the kitchen to enjoy until Valentine’s day. Here are some of the great ones:

And then we have these:

Translation: “I don’t know if I like Caleb, but anyways…” (Josh)

Feel the love!
