really sweet boy you turned five today?! was it really only five years ago that i lay in bed staring at you wondering how it was going to be possible to fall asleep knowing you were here now?! full of yourself you are now...riding without training wheels, swimming with your face in the water, identifying plants and trees like you have always known it all. it has been a big year for our first son, nahum, so much growth and to top it off his first days of not going to school;) we are very excited to journey down the paths of homeschooling/unschooling. i am so happy that so far during our end of the summer farm/food preservation craziness that nothing has changed as we slowly wind down for the fall!!:) we heard about the alarm clocks that are being set and the bus rides and new schedules and it all sounds so lovely...from afar! so here are some photos of our birthday day (which was mellow...breakfast out and a small party at home with some friends and cupcakes!).
