Photos of the Day - Sky High.


"You are worried about seeing him spend his early years in doing nothing. What! Is it nothing to be happy? Nothing to skip, play, and run around all day long? Never in his life will he be so busy again." -Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1762)




"Sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero." ~Marc Brown

Did you edit that first quote after you posted it? My feed reader showed a quote from Rousseau that made me cry.

You are quick! :) Yes - my blogger crashed when I was posting, and then when I went to the saved version it was a version from earlier...I just re-posted it with the correct quote - I like that one too!

Your boys look so happy in these photos. That first quote is something I want to copy and put on my 'fridge.

Tara said...

Wonderful pictures and quotes! I love the sparkle in your little guy's eyes.

i haven't ever commented before, though i have been loving your blog. but this. this. so, so sweet. it really hit home for me today (as it would so many days, i guess) after a long morning of mama-ing. the running, jumping, laughing, and exploring of everything that comes with being a kid -- well, there is just no more important 'work.' those boys of yours look very busy indeed. and happy.

I never hesitate to tell people that my job is the best job there is.

Anet said...

What fun! I want to do that!
By the way I want to tell you that I love the photo in your header. It's beautiful! What kind of plant is it?

I absolutely LOVE that quote! It is exactly the point. We all need to read it every day and remind ourselves how important "nothing" is. Thanks Denise!!! :)

denise said...

Thanks everyone. :)

Jessica - I agree. NIce to hear from you! :) I love comments.

Liz - exactly.

anet - Borage. It is a great (if not a little prickly) plant and I use it for tea as well as drying and craft projects.

I love that 'brothers' photo! I have been so grateful for and thrilled by the closeness of my two boys (4 and 7)- you can really see your boys' brother love here! Yay!
