Morning bird watching

                                         My two littlest ones have this habit that I really adore. Every once in a while after the flurry of getting the big kids out the door to school in the morning, I sit and have tea and read for bit and my littles pull their chairs up to the window and watch the birds pointing and chatting. "Look  Harper, there's a cardinal!" she says. I love how kids are never really in a hurry, they notice so much. In the everyday of full to do lists, it's little moments of quiet with sleepy faces and morning light, that I treasure.

The very young and very old understand the importance of slowing down to notice details. How sweet to have them daily reminding you!
