A moment captured from the week that captured my heart.
A Friday ritual inspired by Soulemama.
I know I comment on it often, but I am still overwhelmingly blessed by the moments I catch when the kids are "blending" so well. It must be a constant fear of a divorced and remarried parent: the worry that "yours" and "mine" will hate each other and we'll never truly be a cohesive family. Don't even get me going on my fears of being an evil stepmom!
Corrinne and Aidan teamed up quite some time ago. They are the ones asking for sibling "sleepovers" in each other's rooms, asking for tape and supplies for their latest craft project, and organizing the neighborhood kids in some new invention of a game. A couple of weeks ago, they discovered a pile of boxes waiting for recycling and dismantled them to build a lemonade stand. I. Love. It. This week, they discovered the piles of unread newspapers on my driveway (yeah, I'm that house) and decided to make kites out of the bags. This is the pictured of them testing their kites. It only lasted a moment because they decided they didn't work very well. They weren't discouraged though, and nonchalantly tossed them into the trash and bebopped onto their next adventure!
If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your moment in your comment.
Happy Weekend, Lovies!
