A portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week, in 2015.
Little Miss : I have felt it since you’ve started school : Although you love going to class every morning, you miss our daily rituals. What used to be daily early morning walks have turned into week-end morning hikes and even though you are excited to be out and about, you’ve also missed the quiet of nature. I can’t complain : Your school has such an “outdoor” mentality. Every morning, when the bell rings, your teacher keeps you guys outside for a little while longer, to play and run before it’s time to settle in. And between almost an hour at lunch time and 20 minute recesses throughout the day, you spend half your time away from us playing in the school yard. But a yard isn’t the woods. We’ll make sure you get as much time as you can in the forests you adore this school year. We will find that balance together. ❤

Little Man : We went apple picking in the frosty morning hours today. You were pretty excited… not by the picking, not by the outdoors, but by the apples. I lost count of how many apples you ate sitting in that little buggy, watching the sun come over the tree line, making the apple trees glimmer in the light. You are such a simple and happy soul. I don’t know anyone that can be as in the moment as you are all the time. You teach me so much everyday about what it is to simply be. I’m so lucky to be your mama. ❤
