Just had to share.
The summer break is a little over half over… can you believe it??? It is flying by, but has also been full of some long rough days for our little clan. Sam has had a hard time being out of his school routine and has lashed out quite a bit… many of his more challenging autistic behaviors coming into play. And poor Rob tore his ACL muscle, and has been in extreme pain and mostly needing to stay off of his knee for weeks now. He’s starting to get a bit more mobile, and we are determined to make the rest of the summer MAGICAL and FUN! He surprised us yesterday morning by suggesting to take a day trip out to the Coast! We headed out to one of our favorite spots – Hug Point – and enjoyed the afternoon playing in the sand, kicking the soccer ball around, and running from the waves. The beach. The Ocean. The sound of the waves. The fresh air. The being in nature. It is all such good medicine for the soul. Its amazing what a little perspective refresher can do.
Dear Readers, I have faltered. I was finally in such a beautiful rhythm of blogging, and I owed it muchly to the Sundays project. And then one Sunday I really didn’t feel like shooting. So I didn’t, and in all of my procrastinating perfectionist glory, the blogging came to a screeching halt. And then the self-imposed guilt and the kicking of my own arse for being such a failure. Silly me. You know those inner voices. We all do, don’t we?
At any rate, I’M BACK… and oh do I have things to share with you! I’ll likely stumble again. And I’ll try to not get stuck for a month, and just go with it. I promise to try.
Picking up with this past Sunday… Sunday and Monday actually. Rob & I decided that our little crew could really use a little perspective refreshing, so we packed up and headed to the beautiful Oregon Coast to take advantage of the incredibly perfect and warm Spring weather we’ve been having. We are super lucky to have friends with a cozy house near Pacific City, and they know how important is for our family to get away occasionally for some fun away from the daily grind. We are so thankful for that gift! Wild and free us. Just for 24 hours. Renewed.
