Above all watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you, because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it. -Roald Dahl
I snapped this photo recently as the kids were having fun on our swing set "the monster castle" as they call it.
They just happen to be lined up by age (9, 7, 6, & 2).
My nicknames for them:
"Blaze " is my oldest at nine and is the trailblazer for the other three. He probably gets the harshest discipline like most firstborn but he helps keep the rest in line. He's my only left handed child which I have found that to mean structure is a good thing. He enjoys school, soccer, and anything having to do with race cars.
"Indy" is seven and is the family spokesperson. He is my "Indiana Jones" free spirit adventurer. He will climb a tree and say, "Hey Mom - I can see the whole world from here!" He can talk to absolutely anybody and make you feel special. He likes basketball, computer games, and anything social.
"Phoebe Fireball" is my sweet and sassy six year old. She can keep up with her brothers and then some. She loves books, horses, tumbling, Hannah Montana, chocolate, and purple. I think she has an artistic streak.
"Scout" is our happy and lively green eyed two year old. The three bigs just adore him. Most of my time is now spent keeping his curious mind out of trouble. There is never a dull moment with our little Scout.
Shine your light,
