We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures. ~Thornton Wilder
This week's treasures include:
-- These beauties ... growing to the next size but still baby feet.
-- Plans to climb a 14er (14,000 foot mountain) with my Mom and siblings to celebrate her 70th birthday were thwarted when she sprained her ankle and knee five weeks ago. So instead, we did this...
-- ...and this. This game ties our family together and has for many generations. Here Avi getting his first taste of Euchre from his Uncle Rick and Uncle Gene.
-- Uncle Gene's whiskers.
-- Our vacation rental included a treasure map.
-- Our visit to the county fair. Making Grandpa Berner Proud.
-- Two weeks ago, a tired Ema at her wits end (as the going-to-sleep-process was once again weighing heavy on us all) drags the futon mattress from the spare room into Avi's room. And this is how his room stayed...
-- ...until Sunday, when Avi and I took the crib apart together, using "tools" and the futon became his temporary big boy bed. The going-to-sleep-process is down from 3-4 hours to 15-45 minutes! Woot!!! I guess he was ready!
