“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But, for children, play is serious learning.” #fredrogers ...We went from sitting inside at a desk all day with a five minute recess here and there, to recess all day with a five minute sit at a desk here and there. So in the coop, even a Saturday is a ‘school day’. It’s magical. #howwehomeschool #happySaturday #Kingandthequeen_
“It’s not so much that we’re afraid of change or so in love with the old ways, but it’s that place in between that we fear... It’s like being between trapezes. It’s Linus when his blanket is in the dryer. There’s nothing to hold on to.” • Cue the wide eyes. 😳 The in between. He wants to be the thing we hold on to in the in between. Seriously, my whole life just made sense! 🤣 Not even joking!! Literally my whole life... all my unanswered questions. For real?? WHAT... is happening? Now all I need is my favorite girl to be here and say “What is life.” @cathypolk 😝 Thoughts... today you get my random thoughts. #eiphany #🤯 #whatislife
The cherubim’s butt... yes, that’s what he’s pointing to 😝. When we moved to SC, this sexy guy took a much ‘lower’ job than where he was. ‘Lower’ in the eyes of us who had a LOT of processing to do. But one day... when all our fleshly insides died and we looked at things in such different light... he called me from work to say that someone had spray painted the butt of a cherubim and he was in charge of cleaning it. Well, we were both hysterically laughing on the phone... scrubbing the butt of a baby cherubim... Yahweh... you’re funny. So gloriously funny. It was a day I’ll never forget. Maybe, because for some reason, we both truly knew that even though life had been so incredibly hard for what seemed like forever, the fruit that was evident that day was beautiful. Currently, we’ve got some stuff goin on that’s pretty rough and I’m honestly a bit confused... and frustrated... yet at the same time I can literally SEE what’s happening in the invisible. This picture right here is an amazing reminder of just that. So here it posts. Prophesying joy...legacy... and faithfulness. #yesandthankyou #thejordancoop
She’s an observer. A quiet observer. Eyes wide, mouth wide, takes it all in and moves on without a word while you can literally see the wheels turning in her head. Yet even in the quiet, she has such a beautifully, strong presence. Don’t get me wrong, she talks... a lot... but only after an event, conversation, or the day, is winding down and she’s taken in everything that she needs in order to comprehend it all. I don’t know fully what her future holds, but when she puts on an outfit that she loves, I can literally see the inspiration begin to glow in her eyes. We throw on some make-up, grab a few accessories, capture what’s inspiring her and her entire being lights up! Like in that very moment she wouldn’t rather BE anywhere else or be DOing anything else in the whole world. And the wheels that are ever turning in her head come to a halt. It’s like she’s at complete rest even though she’s doing... something that is so important for us to find. It’s such an honor to be able to recognize these moments and steward them as best I can until she’s ready to fly into whatever Yahweh has for her. #fashionablyadelaide #wildandfree
“Why is your pasta on the table?” “Pecause I didn’t want it in my bowl.” ...🤷♀️ Some #dailydoseofcharlotte and her cute scrunchy face for your morning.
