Little Miss : It’s been a tricky summer : We’ve had to transition you out of your beloved afternoon nap, getting ready for 1st grade this year… to make it worse, the 40’C (100’F) days have made you so sleepy. But you try, bless your heart, to occupy your mind and body. Even if sometimes the results are not quite what you expected. I just love your silly soul!❤

Little Miss : Even with the intense heat we’ve been getting throughout the day, mornings have remained chilly and you are truly your mama’s daughter : Give us a sweater and a pretty scarf and we are ready to take on the world. You shine.❤

Little Man : How hard you have been working my love… We’ve been going through therapy and your special brand of homeschooling together, even during these beautiful summer days. You’ve grown more focused and your interests have widened so much. I feel like you have grown so much in such a short amount of time. Thank you for being open and kind, patient and resilient. You will accomplish amazing things and I will be with you every step of the way.❤

Little Miss : The moment we came home from vacation, we went downtown…  How you love your city! You could walk the streets, go up the hundreds of steps, eat pastries in your favorite café and soak up the sounds and sights many of your waking hours. As much as you love nature, there is a big part of you that is and forever will be a city girl. And that is okay. Embrace and love every part of yourself my love, self acceptance is one of life’s greatest gifts!❤

Little Man : Stopping to smell the roses, literally. LOL! You started breathing very strongly through your nose. It has been amazing for us because now, you actually blow your nose, but how wonderful that you are now taking the time to smell flowers, smell your food, smell the air around you… It has opened up a whole new level of facial expressions and physical communication and every breakthrough in communication is a huge victory for all of us. Once again my love : We are listening… with every part of our body, we hear you. And we love you!❤

Little Man : You met one of your heroes today… as part of your birthday extravaganza, your very sweet sweet aunt took you to meet Daniel Tiger. We weren’t sure how you would react : Would the “bigger-than-life” friend scare you or amaze you? We lucked out and you just had a blast. You got to hold his hand, hug him, give home big high-5s and bring a little part of him home. It brought tears to my eyes to see you SO happy… And that is all I ever want for you, limitless happiness.❤

Little Man : My water baby! Within the first few days of our trip Pennsylvania, we found you a lake and go back to that lake over and over we did. You could live in water. Nothing makes you happier than splashing around and running… feeling the weight of the water on your legs as you are making your way across. You even learned that having floaties is not a punishment but a ticket to freedom. Oh the fun we had! I love seeing that big beautiful smile. This was the first week-end of 2 beautiful weeks with our family and friends. What a blast we had!❤

Little Miss : My little lady… You were so happy sitting and remembering snippets of the last time you were by this river. This trip down to Pennsylvania was a little confusing to you. You were 3 years old last time we went and your memory was spotty. Things felt familiar, but everything was still new. We had so much fun discovering it again together.❤

Little Man : Late afternoon sunlight and a very low tide make for a happy Little Man! It’s finally been warm enough that we can let you get as dirty and wet as you want and you have been in heaven. I know we have to teach about restraint. Not every situation allows you to be completely wild and free, but luckily, those moments are few and far between… for now anyway! Don’t grow up too fast my love. These are the best days!❤

Little Miss : Oh summer days, oh summer days… This was taken a few days before school was officially out and I could feel you needing some time : time to explore without instruction, time to listen to yourself think… unstructured. Freedom! I know you will miss your friends and your teacher, but you will go back next fall rested and renewed. School break is an important part of the “school” experience. You will come to treasure it.  ❤
