"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.


what we did today

Sean and I have been playing this week. Yesterday, Sean, Uncle Brian and I went to the Chattahoochee Nature Center.  We saw Owls, Hawks, Bald Eagles, Vultures, and a sleepy Beaver. Snakes and Turtles were in the mix too. Then we were off to Stevie B's for pizza and ice cream. When Sean got home he told his Dad he was tired and needed a nap.  Mina needed one too. 

Today we painted and played with play dough.  I let him mix the play dough colors (his Mom does not) Grandma can do things like that.  lol

Tomorrow we are going to the Atlanta Aquarium.  Dade (Grampa) is joining us for this excursion, should be lots of fun.  I can't wait to see Sean's face when he sees it all.

Children paint without boundaries oh how nice if we could do that as adults. Taught pre-school for 30 years- it was pure delight to watch them create.

I see y'all did have fun!
What an adventurous time with Nina :)

And yes, Grandmas can let their little loves do fun things like mix play-doh.

The Good Friday painting with the reds and blues is amazing!
