MASTER OF GREEN...

BEST FRIEND...

Even though Koya knows I am coming back, she still crushes me with this sad face as I drive away.

PERFECT...

Seeing the world with Claudia just keeps getting better and better.

MORNING GLOW...

Taking into account tomorrow is the last day before Christmas vacation; I asked Matisse if he should take off school Friday. Without hesitation, he says "Can we go to Bangkok"!! I was thinking the beach and ice cream at best!!! I am a little worried about his expectations for what's under the tree!!!

UP UP & AWAY...

Matisse asked me if we get enough ballons could he fly. I figured this was a good enough day as any to try it out!!! It should be noted that Matisse is very patient - we might be here a while :)

DOUBLE TROUBLE...

GOALLLLL...

Enjoying the World Cup hanging in the backyard. In-between matches, Matisse and I went to the park and kicked the ball around (watching some of the best makes you think you'll organically gain some skills - tested / not true ;) We rushed home to catch Portugal vs Uruguay - I thought Matisse was as hyped as me when the game got underway but looking over, it's obvious, he's now dreaming of his own future great goals to score!!

KEEP MOVING FORWARD...

My vision of opportunities available in the world at 16 vs the reality of opportunities at 46 is hard to express in words. Looking back, I am so grateful for the challenges, detours, setbacks, come-ups, successes and most of all, the blessings of the journey.

Super excited to be jumping on a red-eye to Australia with some great friends for what will be the best chapter of them all!!

EMBRACE THE BURN...

Boys asked me to run the stairs this morning and whenever reaching the top I was done! Then I turned around and thought; Ok...One More!!!
