On the Road

Sierra woke well before the crack of dawn today, so by 7 am I'm trying to think of things to do. It's was a beautiful day with the fall colors in full bloom, so I decided to put the kids in the car and go up to Port Townsend. I love Port Townsend. It's full of quaint shops, historic buildings and colorful people. We headed out to the beach for some rock throwing (a favorite activity of the kids) and enjoyed the gorgeous NW day. I remind myself that I should do more things like this with the kids. It is so good for us to get out of the house and the daily routines. Of course, it's always easier said than done with two small human beings.

Telling it like it is

Each and every day i spend with these darling children i learn something new. I love that this picture captures what life is like these days in our house. This was a very cool day in that we had a huge thunderstorm....something that doesn't happen here in the NW very often. I set out the chairs on the porch so Jax and Sisi could witness all the exciting action of the storm. Each and every time the clouds "collided" they would both whoop and holler and ask for more. Jackson is always trying to be the big brother and explain to Sierra what is really happening. Most times Sisi goes on her own rant with her adorable and mostly unintelligable stories which frustrates Jackson, and so, the battle begins..... It is so amazing to witness the friendship and connection that is happening between brother and sister. I am an only child, so seeing this all unfold before me is like reliving a childhood and seeing what it must be like for those with siblings.
I am starting this blog in hopes to record some of these precious moments that happen in every day life. The things that I feel I will always remember somehow seem to fade into the distance with out even knowing it.
This is my life, these are my stories.
