That's my boys, looking handsome as ever for their first day. I wish I could freeze that moment, but growing
up is fact of life and I'm excited to see what the future has in store for both of them.
Jackson came home today with a small, white paper bag. His assignment - fill the bag with five things that best represent who he is. That was easy for him: a lock of his curly hair, a rock from his collection, drawings of his super heroes, pictures of characters he played in theater camp and a Dallas Cowboys helmet.
I thought it was such a cool task, that I decided to do my own. Have you ever thought about trying this? What 'THINGS' represent who you are? It started out being harder than I anticipated, but once I thought about who I really am, the task was easy. It filled me with joy and made me so grateful for the life I have.
1. A favorite picture of my family. Our shadows. That's us holding hands to represent that we are one strong unit. I love this photo because it is also very symbolic of a higher power watching over us.
