When he was small, my youngest son had a habit of filling his pockets with treasures he encountered in his daily adventures. I didn't always understand the value he saw in his chosen objects -- really, how many rocks and sticks could one boy keep? In his eyes, though, each one was beautiful and important. Life is just like that on a larger scale, isn't it? We gather up the precious bits of our experiences and save them all to learn from and enjoy later. Perhaps you'll find a little something here that you'd like to keep in your own pockets. Thanks for visiting.

Two Brothers

The boys' school held a pep rally last Friday afternoon to send off their Lego League team to the West Provincial Championships on Saturday.

Will was a ham and a total natural at the mic, despite being one of the youngest members of the team.  He was smart, confident, funny, and engaging as he spoke, and he led the whole school in a dance routine that he had made up himself.

Noah stayed inconspicuously in the background throughout the rally, not taking any credit for the significant contributions he made to the project and the robot in the development stages or the strong, quiet leadership he demonstrated throughout the season.

Two very different brothers; both amazing in their own ways.  I'm so very proud of my boys.
