The Spirit of Love

Look at that love between brothers...on their way to Fort Matanzas .
"You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have really lived, are the moments when you have done things in a spirit of love." -- Henry Drummond

Our lives have been so unusual these past few years that I find myself being ever so purposeful in my actions at home. Where once upon a time I would say yes, to just about anything to escape my four walls, I find myself, saying no so I can be here, with the ones I love the most.

It's the little things. Like making special breakfasts, or cookies every week.
The day I made all different flavored pancakes.

Bacon, Egg & Cheese Cups!

Breakfast Cookies...for when we're on the GO!

Coconut Macaroons...made with love!

Baked Smores...a huge hit!
Writing love notes in the middle of their things to do...

Taking tons of time to help them learn, they way they learn...not they way I learn.

With Mrs. Barbara - at our new Science Co-op on Fridays!
Playing checkers in Fort Matanzas

Making sure his uniform is washed, dried and not wrinkled. Waking up even earlier to have coffee with Mr. Incredible before he leaves for the hospital.
Mr. Incredible

Playing dodge ball with the cutest superheros on the planet...or if not dodge ball...certainly nerf gun wars or my personal favorite...the damsel in my superheros can come rescue me.

Reading one extra chapter, knowing that partly its because they love the story, but partly they do not want to do handwriting practice.

Waking them up in the morning with soft kisses and sweet whispers.

This is how we do everyday things...with the Spirit of Love!
