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

Running Lessons


The other day Jeff was giving Jonah some pointers on how to run faster.  Lean forward a little, keep the weight on your toes, etc.  Jonah was faithfully practicing by running up and down the hall, applying the new principles.

Apparently he was feeling pleased with the results, because he decided to sign up for a full course of lessons.  He made this list himself and excitedly presented it to his dad, who he planned would be the teacher.

“Look Mom and Dad!  I signed up for running lessons!”

  1. That Jonah is such a smart little boy. He seems to be willing in life to put in whatever time it takes to accomplish what he has in mind!
