This Presence

"I only have this breath
and this presence
for my wings
and they carry me." - David Whyte

There has been so much beauty and growth recently. S has been spending his mornings this week at nature camp while I'm leading Mighty Girl Art. It was his idea and we could not be more pleased. S has never done anything without one of us before. We've always been a packaged deal. No preschool. No daycare. Just mama-and-me, or papa-and-me classes. So we were quite surprised and delighted when he made the request.

He walked into the nature house with head held high, ready to explore his path independently. It is truly his milestone. He made this leap on his own and in his own time and in his own way. We could not be more proud of him.
