Sunflowers {Letters to Our Children}

This I think is one of my new favorite pictures of you guys.  You were smiling, looking at me, and giving sweet hugs with just the promise of a Dr. Pepper from Sonic afterwards.  ;-) I love you guys!!

To my amazing kids:

I am loving this journey with you guys.  I love to see you make new friends and learn new things.  I love the cute conversations we have.

Last week we went to lunch and man walked in the door.  {Little Girl} You looked at him and said, "Look Mom, there's a pirate.  Aaaarrrggghhhh Matey!"  {Little Man} You quickly agreed with her, "Yes mom there's a pirate".  Hehe...I couldn't bring myself to turn around and look.  :-)

I love that you guys dream big too.  {Little Man}:  You have been telling us lately that when you grow up you want to be a fireman, go to outer space, and to be a doctor. {Little Girl} So when I asked you what you wanted to be when you grow up.  You  told me, "When I grow up, I want to be a flower."  I love the innocence in your answers.

I love that we can experience new things together.  I love asking you at the end of day what your favorite part of the day was and hearing all the responses you come up with.

You guys are so imaginative right now.  You are amazing!  You guys are even more than what I ever dreamed for.  I love you so much!


I have joined a Clickin Mom's group that has created a blog circle where we will share monthly letters to our children. In a world where we all get so busy with life, for me it is an opportunity to slow down and hopefully record some of our moments together for them. Please check out my friend Chrissy's beautiful letter to her boys here and then follow our circle around until you get back to me.
