I think the world of you my little boy. You amaze me. Every time I turn around, I am in awe of your courage and determination to master and enjoy life in the most pure and simple ways. I love your enthusiasm. I love your soul...it is pure love and goodness bottled up in a little boy with freckles on his nose.
I love how you can laugh at yourself and see the good and joy in almost every situation. I love how excited you get over the little things...like going for a bike ride, chasing chickens, building a gun, and snuggling up on the couch to a book.
You are brave. You drink deeply of life's experiences. You are a ponderer. You teach me more than I could ever teach myself. I love you James. I really love you!

Hello? Is there anyone out there?
I doubt it.
I've abandoned this blog, but I've decided to come back, and write to my future self.
There are just so many things I want to always remember.
I want to always remember the time James found two fresh eggs in the coop, then put them in his pant pockets, and then went and jumped on the trampoline. I also want to remember how James can tear it up on skis down the mountain and make it to the top of the rock climbing wall.
And I want to remember how Caleb chases the chickens for hours each day, grabs their tail feathers, and then pins them.
And I never want to forget Daniel's first cello concert, or seeing him out-ski me.
And then there is Anna, who thinks 50 degrees is swim suit weather and she can't get enough bike riding in in a day.
Mostly, I just want to remember how bright and colorful life is.
