My kiddo was sick, we stayed home and watched movies, just
layed with her and rubbed her hair as she slept, she is so sweet.
I lucked out and even had a message scheduled and was actually
able to go because Kali was here and able to help. During the message
she played a CD of the Dahli llama chanting, it was so beautiful. The CD is a chant
through healing. The message felt different today, like the whole universe was saying
just be today and receive all this love and healing energy. I got home totally relaxed, Abby was feeling a little better, we read books and talked. My parents had stopped by to check on Abs and friends came over to bring otter pops, eggs from their own chickens for chocolate zucchini bread, and presents just because. My dad ended coming by twice- we talked about the economy and some politics. Joe got home on time and we didn't have to go anywhere or do anything, it was sooo nice. I got to take a walk as the sun was setting. Today, a cocoon all warm and protected.

So this is what it is about for me. Makes me emotional, too. Maybe because you realize there are people like you all over the world when it doesn't feel like it most days. Or because we are so busy "doing" that there is hardly any time for "being." When mainstream feels so foreign to you and hope for a different world for our kids some days seems so hopeless. This gives me hope that people are awake and care.....

Abs and Luke taking a break after a big run around the yard- Luke even had his plane wings out!
Our sweet La Push- a weekend of lots of laughs, good weather, some dancing, communal cooking and great friends.

"We write to taste life twice. Once in the moment, and once in retrospection." - Anais Nin

The Prock boys checking out the cows. We had such a good visit- so glad you made the trek!
Wow, it is still really hard to get a picture of all three kids actually looking at the camera. Oh well.
First Day of Kindergarten, our sweetie girl. She is loving it by the way!
