What I'm Listening To: 100 Years by Five for Fighting
This is the post I have been waiting to write for 19 days. John is finally home! As I blog, he is sleeping quietly downstairs in our bed. Hopefully he on his way to a full recovery. We are just thrilled to have him within reach.
This shot I took yesterday of Jack, is a wonderful image of how we all are feeling right now with our family back together....joyful. Do you remember when you were a kid and you could swing for hours on end? I sure do. As I watched him swing (for what seemed like an hour) I just loved the look on his face as he pumped higher and higher and higher. As I took my turn (yeah, I did it), I was savoring the wind and sun on my face because yesterday was beautiful. And my kids seemed to get a kick out of watching me as they had those laughs from deep in their bellies. It doesn't take much to transport me to my happy place these days and this certainly did the trick.
All this being said, I had a lot of fun getting these shots. I was beneath the swing on my back for a few of them which prompted those ineveitable looks from other parents. I actually took this one from my knees and I liked it the best. It was fun for me to do with them.
Anyhow, I am off to take care of John. I hope that you all had a restful Sunday and have a good week!
