Youngest: You sat with me everyday after school to work on your reading. I love listening to you try to sound things out and I treasure this little ritual that has unexpectedly unfolded.
Middle: You have your best friend over. You two are like peas in a pod and I love that you have a close friend that you can depend on. I can see that you are so very happy by the light dancing in your eyes.
Oldest: Closer and closer everyday to running off to college. Even though it is 5+ years away, every time I turn around you are doing something more grown-up and more responsible. Today, you came home and made your own egg & toast sandwich for snack. Perhaps next week you can start doing your own laundry?
Looking through the collection of lovely posts over at Jodi's blog, it is really hard to pick one or two. However, here are some of my favorites from last week:
Amanda's daughter on the blog Ellieboo. She is so intent on her task. I thought her freckles and her painted fingernails were just so perfect.
Love the way the light frames these sweet faces on Blog a la Cart.
AND I love these black and white portraits on Rachel's blog Tea With Lucy.
