The end is coming. Next week is the end of being four for my little fairy. In a few weeks the end of childcare for my little monkey and the end of the 52 project and a year’s worth of weekly life images.
As with many endings, come new beginnings. In a couple of months Evie will take her first few steps into “big school” and I will have a huge lump in my throat as she runs too quickly from my arms. Jake will join his sister at Bialik, where I have no doubt he will gain so much, like his sister did, from the most incredible two year kinder experience. I will start some new time capsule photo projects that I have planned for 2015. This blog has been a much needed outlet for me, something for myself and also something to give to my kids. Evie recently asked me if I can give her my memory so she can remember when she was a baby. I loved spending time with her poring over photos of her from a young baby.
As I come close to the last of the 52 posts for the year, I have also come to the realisation how important it is for me to document the kids lives. I recall the words of Kahil Gibran who so aptly described children as “you may house their bodies, but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.” This blog is a way for me to try reach their souls in the house of tomorrow.
Evie: It’s not often you find a tractor in our narrow streets, but this library toy got a workout from both kids.
Jake: Even when he grows up, part of him will always remain my little superhero.
Together: This melted my heart.
