• Love then and love now.
• Love pretend eating french fries with Jackson straight from the oven window with the light on because he's too hungry to wait for them to come out. Love that it was his idea, and that he reached out and "grabbed" one for me too. Love sitting on the floor together for "Oven TV."
• Love our new ECFE class this fall. Love that it is a separating class and that Jackson is doing awesome with the separation. Love having tea with adults in a room with a regular-sized table for an hour with our parent educator while the kids are learning and playing with the other educators...far, far away down the hall...
• Love having a candle at our dining room table that we light and say special words for every meal together now. Love that Jackson's starting to anticipate the candle and loves to blow it out at the end.
• Even with all of this love for my family, love that I am getting away for the weekend with six awesome knitting women to the family cabin on Lake Superior. It's just one night away, but we will have pie for breakfast and yarn for dessert.
(thursday night edition since my friday "to-do" list is too long!)
