First Harvest

The garden we built and planted a few months ago yielded the first crop today. We’ll be eating fresh cilantro and green beans! The girls are SO EXCITED!!

Happy Pentecost 2012!

2 Minutes of Love

One of the joys of working from home (most days) is that I can take a couple of minutes here and there to interact with the kids. It’s a nice break and distraction at certain points of the day. Today, Katie wanted to learn how to kick the soccer ball up in the air rather than a simple pass. Since I start most mornings on the back porch, it was a quick 2 minute lesson that resulted in a huge smile, a big hug, and a memorable, “Thank you, Daddy!”

Yup. That’s what it’s all about.
