I hate seeing them like this. I wish I could wave a magic wand and make everything better.
But sometimes the best thing for them is to let them figure it out themselves; that’s how they learn and grow.
I’m so grateful for Nathanael. I couldn’t have chosen a better partner and father to my children. He’s good at hands-off parenting–that is, until someone needs a hug.
This afternoon, Nathanael helped me plant the apple orchard I’ve been planning since before the new house was constructed.
I’m excited to bring new life to the property. Nathanael just wants fresh apples for his homemade apple pie (not that I’m complaining!).
Then we had dinner as a family, a rare treat. Kylie loved it — she went on and on about her “crazy fun” day at school.
That reminds me–I need to help her with her homework tonight. Apparently Dale and Jenna have a date!
