insights on my kids

Watching my kids grow is simply fascinating – full of delight, awe, pleasant surprises & very astounding.  Here are some recent developments:

David – wants to buy a box of girlscout cookies & keep them for awhile & then re-sell them for more than he bought them for.  He COMPLETELY came up w this scheme on his own.  Furthermore, he also has the plan to sell part of the ABC juice (apples, beets & carrots – uber healthy) that we make to mimi (grandma) twice a month to make money.  This entrepeuner thing just surfaced recently.  Needless to say, I’m speechless bc i didn’t even consider thinking this way until at least high school & probably more like post college.  (pawns in chess are ponds)

Isabell:  the long hair is pretty much lost on me, given that i’ve enjoyed short hair & its simplicity for close to 2 decades.  She is growing her hair to cut if off & donate it to locks of love for kids w cancer.  Furthermore, its really cool to watch her confidence grow as she overcomes various insecurities to achieve goals that she has set for her self – selling girlscout cookies has been the recent platform for this personal growth.  I see her thinking, growing & living in the present w great contentment.

Benji:  everything he does has some wiggle (except now as I’m watching him play Reece in chess – take it back, he just went to the bathroom).  Anyways, he’s wonderfully generous & relational, with eyes full of life, creativity & happiness.  And today, we got to ski w Benji & he was simply fantastic.  I love that he watches his older brother to grow, learn & play.  I’m glad he’s a kind person because a mean person with his intelligence would be scarey.

I’m blown away by my kids.

  1. I love what you have in this blog about your kids it says so much of you as a mom and David as a dad. I think your kids are bless to have you both, it is such a challenging time for kids and to have a mom and dad that appreciates them and helps them grow in a nurturing home is so important.
    It is so hard for me to watch the news and see all the abuse that children go through this days by young parents who where not ready to have a child and have an enormous amount of personal problems and insecurities and they take out on their kids.
    At my church we are very active in the community and is amazing to me that when we go to visit with many of the waiters and waitresses of the restaurants in downtown we hear so many aching hearts and empty souls. I believe that this is the time where we as Christians need to get out from our beautiful church buildings and go touch the people in our communities for the sake of the children.
