a little ditty for the girl they call Hen.

Running through this world trying to feed my soul
Anything to make me whole
Just me, just me, just me
And nothing else could matter more

Heard a rap song on the radio, somehow felt just right
Met you that night
With you, with you, with you
And nothing else could matter more

Held you in my arms that August day
This is my true way
With us, with us, with us
And nothing else will matter more

Gifts for Teachers!

So far, we’ve been lucky with the stellar teachers in Hen’s life. Each one has brought their own unique quality to teaching her and more importantly each one has loved her. We give her teachers a cash bonus each holiday, but I’m a big fan of small tokens of appreciation throughout the year. Here are my go-to gifts!

The Life that I Have

The Life that I Have by Leo Marks 

The life that I have
Is all that I have
And the life that I have
Is yours.
The love that I have
Of the life that I have
Is yours and yours and yours.
A sleep I shall have
A rest I shall have
Yet death will be but a pause.
For the peace of my years
In the long green grass
Will be yours and yours and yours.

Gettin' Crafty!

I love crafting. It is the thing that started this blog after all! To me, it’s only felt natural to craft with Hen! It’s something we can do together that’s just for her and I. (Quinn wants no part of craft time!) Here are my favorite activities! I put them in age ranges based on when I introduced them to her, but we still do all of these.
