home! gifts & other things.

One of the best parts of last week's roadtrip was hanging out with dear friends that we don't see often.  Angie reminded me of Ann Voskamp's book 1,000 Gifts and challenged me to dust off my list of gifts and just start counting.  Life has felt so fast lately and I feel like I'm missing so much.  It's true that keeping a record of it slows time somehow.  Here are some highlights from the week:

332.  When Reptile Man asked for volunteers to put a boa constrictor back in its box, only one of my kids raised a hand.

320.  He caught a fish!  And when Daniel "caught" Everett's hand, Nate knew exactly what to do.
324.  Fresh berries from right down the street.

This summer, I want to notice.  While they are small.
