"I cannot cause light; the most I can do is try to put myself in the path of it's beam. It is possible, in deep space, to sail on a solar wind. Light, be it particle or wave, has force: you rig a sail and go. The secret of seeing is to sail on solar wind. Hone and spread your spirit till you yourself are a sail, whetted, translucent, broadside to the merest puff." (a n n i e d i l l a r d )

Our family has begun to heal, I think.  We heal when we are whole and we are whole upon the earth.  Our feet pressed firmly, steady and without hesitation.  Our walks have been our hopes in the form of movement.  Every day we search for new places to have an "adventure" as we call it with the kids.  I'm so happy to have a husband who will walk with me.  Elliot and Ash are truly growing up and "becoming" brothers and even friends.  The whole walk they would stop to wrestle, then to hug and sometimes hold hands.  There were so many giggles I thought I'd rise and start to fly on the backs of their laughter.  It bubbles and stirs within me; and I just know things will be okay.  <3

I remember discovering Leigh's blog when Asher was only a few months old.  I tried out for The Sling Diaries then, but it wasn't until the next round (volume III)  that I received that treasured email from Leigh.  ;)  I'm so glad I did and through my involvement with The Sling Diaries I've only come to admire her more.  Her beliefs as a feminist and her devotion to gentle parenting has been such an inspiration!  Sure, she helps run one of my favorite companies ever, but it's so obvious that what makes her so wonderful is way more than that!  <3  

Anyways, she approached me about group swim lessons and I'm so glad she did!  The boys had such a blast and learned a lot!  (even if it was mainly by watching.  they weren't totally into the whole "following directions" part. haha)  Now, Asher has learned to put his head in the water and blow bubbles and he swims around the whole pool!  (with his swimmies, of course)  And Elliot is kicking and doggie paddling like a pro.  Leigh's boys are doing so well and Hazel sure knows how to rock those swim goggles. ;)  I think my favorite part was that Asher calls them all "friend."  <3
