Sweet Freedom

My daughter is currently playing on the swingset in nothing but her panties and a bad case of bed-head.

We made Zaya put on shorts before he went outside, but Mim slipped out when Art and I were talking.

She looked so happy and free out there that I didn't have the heart to take out her clothes. For how long in our life do we have that complete innocence?

Not for long. Enjoy it.

I've been thinking about that a lot lately as we see youth mature and become men and women. I especially reflect on that when we see the young men and women join the armed forces and defend our freedoms. Through the process into adulthood, we lose our innocence. Bittersweet, we don't want to be Peter Pans, but we will miss some of the journeys.

Enjoy these times with your children! They grow up far too fast.
