Time together

I don't really know what to say about the frequency of my posting lately. I just can't seem to get into a groove. Can't seem to pull out the camera as often as I should. Can't seem to do a lot of things. Sometimes I wonder if it isn't time to put the blog aside for a while, but I so love to look back at my previous writing and pictures that I can't bring myself to do that. The truth is that my children are busy and exhausting and don't sit still for photos like they did as infants. And I'm busy too with my many jobs and the endless house project, and did I mention those busy children? Maybe I need a goal for myself. Like two posts a week or something. I don't know. I need to work on this.

I can't even say that I've been a particularly good mother lately. I have my moments though. These pictures are from an early morning walk Makili and I went on together one day at Ann's when he was up to early and threatening to wake the whole house. Sometimes it is difficult to get Makili to go outside, as he is so content to play with legos or cars or draw or whatever, but that day I made him. It was nice to have the time just the two of us to sit by the side of a creek and watch the water go buy, talking about where the water goes and where it comes from. Very philosophical I know.
