Soul Food #138~
It's been too long~
Easter was good.. and busy..and we are very lucky to spend it with close family~Watching all 6 non adults.. not concentrating on the 6 adults :)..I realized Oli..the 3 year old..is still at that totally innocent stage of life~
When appearances mean nothing ..apart from pointing to his bright blue sky top ..to show me that it was a special day I think and he too was part of the "dressing up"..(he does that:) )..but outside..searching for the eggs..there was no competition..no race..just happiness and wonder..at being outside with his brothers and some of his cousins..finding these treasures and putting them in his basket..♥
He snuggled with me while looking at his paltry findings:) smiling..offering me goldfish from the Easter goldfish small carton..while the others were counting and eating and admiring..
I think I ♥ his innocence yesterday..
So far removed are small ones..compared to us..~
Today..Monday..we finished a system restore on our home..:) and I took photos..and Pinned and read..just being..QUIET~
One of my daughters sent me photos of her friend's ( and ours)..spanking brand new baby boy....Luke..the family went to visit them ..and while looking at his peaceful newborn face..
I thought.. everything that happens to you.. from now on..is so part of you..
May it be good♥
She also sent me a photo of Max's (5) latest artwork..I think he is in such a NEAT after school activity..It's different than the others..
Max loves art..(my mom was an artist..)..last week the teacher taught them about Monet~
I am sure I was in my 20's the first time I learned about Monet..Or was interested in learning..there is a difference and your tastes evolve..change..
We spoke of him at the bus stop..and Max repeated his name perfectly..
His latest works..:)
I think art.. in this form..is wonderful for kids.. they may have a way..of seeing in the present..longer~
