This week was not one of the better ones. There was kiddie sickness, ink pen on the kitchen wall and not much went as planned. I have tried hard to find joy in the mist of everything.
Don't postpone joy until you have learned all of your lessons. Joy is your lesson.
~Alan Cohen

It really is the little things that count. That is where true joy lies.

The boys I watch were out one morning due to illness and it gave Megan and I some time to bake. She is learning to crack an egg and was full of joy when she succeeded.

The little man feeling better and playing with kindness. Something that we are working on.

Taking some time to get out and enjoy the spring like weather.

Watching Megan wanting to be just like Daddy.

Enjoying the beauty of night.

Enjoy yourself. These are the good old days you're going to miss in the years ahead.
