Happy Friday! Each week I gather bits of joy to share here and I’ve been surrounded with sweet moments that I’m excited to write down.
+ Picture this: Bronwyn standing at the piano with a picture book in the music stand, upside down, and playing as though reading sheet music. Joy, my friends!
+ Colton has never really loved books, unless it’s to rip them apart or eat them. But several times this week he has taken a stack of picture books to the couch and flipped through them. The magic is lost if one tries to sit down and read to him, so it’s okay to just admire him enjoying them in his own (and totally appropriate, yay!) way.
+ It’s a chore to bathe all three children. One doesn’t want to get in; another doesn’t want to get out; and yet another refuses to do anything but lay straight as a log, arms crossed, and silent until the whole ordeal is over. But is there anything better than tucking your brood into bed at night, knowing they’re all clean just for a little while, and for once feeling like you might know what you’re doing?
+ It’s fun to work on my own penmanship while the kiddos are practicing their handwriting. This is a Spencarian Penmanship copybook that I’m enjoying! It’s especially helpful for Bryce to see me concentrating and working on my own handwriting as he’s practicing his. He likes it when I comment that some letters are harder than I expected (like these wonky x’s I’ve been working on).
May you all have a wonderful weekend, full of sunshine, good books, and wonderful company. And I’d love to hear where you’ve been finding joy lately!
