Family time is sacred and rare.
We felt we needed a slow paced family day.
We walked slowly and consciously told the Reason's how much we loved them. I particularly spent some time with Hayden today. Talking, laughing and remembering.
I took time today to look at him. Really look at him. He is growing into such a wonderful young man. He will be 10 this year. TEN! I can't believe it. When did he get so grown up?
We needed today.
We really needed today.
The Five Little Reasons never have a day off from school. They all have a near perfect attendance record.
But we needed today.
And it was good.
