What an inspiration this family is to me.
She reads chapter books in the 2nd grade ..... and loves every minute of it. She and her mom do a daily devotion BEFORE school every single day, no matter what. Wow. That's a wow for me. I only have one more child than she does and my mornings are, well. This is not really about me. :) Very inspiring, though. Very.
Her clubhouse reminds me of a lemonade stand, which screams childhood to me. I always wanted a cool lemonade stand to sit out by the street and sell delicious, refreshing cups of iced cold lemonade to neighbors. Mine looked alot like a handmade poster with lots of doodles taped to a card table.
I watched this sweet little girl curl up in her chair and lay down and noticed how big she's getting....she almost won't fit laying down in it anymore. I watched her dive into the pool and thought about how fun it will be for her to look back on this image when she's 20 and make comparisons to how life was then.
There are lots of childhood memories wrapped up in sessions that take place at home. Why? Because it's daily life and as boring as that seems now, daily life changes and we don't miss it or want to remember it until it's gone. Sigh. It all goes way too quickly!
