high flying

Thank goodness I was never sent to school; it would have rubbed off some of the originality. ~Beatrix Potter

I kick my kids outside a lot. Well, that’s not entirely true I guess. I kick Josiah and Caleb out and Sam always yells “Yay!” when I give the fresh air order. Lately the boys have been swinging on the unpruned lower limbs of our old Maple tree.
Sam got creative with the dog leash tied to that low branch. He fixed Luke Skywalkers fists to hold on for dear life to Lucy’s rope chew toy. Called out for an audience (me) and prepared to launch Luke (this was shouted dramatically) “to the outer depths of Space!”

He flipped up pretty high and did a little spin in the air. Sam had Luke in pre-launch mode for a second shot before the dizziness even wore off. If plastic could scream, this little Jedi would.

Christian homeschooling mom to three boys, married to my best friend, John, for over 20 years. I love gardening without gloves, learning history with my kids, cooking with lots of butter, serving others, great books, rich coffee, studying the Bible, camping outdoors, scrapbooking, vintage home decor, the smell of rain and cut grass, authentic people, poetry, laughing until your sides hurt, and babies. oh and black licorice is pretty awesome.
