a wonder to behold

.... school holidays
.... oh no!  what do i do with the kids!
.... they'll be at each other!
.... no peace and quiet!
.... mantra:  i .... i will survive!

sounds familiar?  we are on week #2 of three weeks holidays here down under and i am feeling stretched and challenged.

.... i have kids who want to explore their world and challenge all the limits (it's a kid thing)
.... i have kids who laugh and giggle over the simplest little pleasures
.... my amazing children aren't afraid to engage with their world and tackle all it has to offer (with a little help from mum and dad, of course!)

in all this i stand in awe.  as my husband said last night .... kids are almost as fun to watch as chickens!  the way they interact and interpret what is around them.  a child's ability to take the mundane and turn it into something amazing.

Dear Father .... i thank you for the gift of my children.  may i always nurture this joy in my them. may i teach them to face all that this world has to offer .... knowing that a foundation in YOU will get them through anything!
