Break Dance through this Life

I was watching this today. And just amazed at my son and in awe of our God.

Sylas is in the process of serial casting after botox again. We're in the second week and he's chosen purple casts both times. I think it makes Grandpa Morrison happy that even though we are living smack in the middle of cheese country, Sylas is still sticking to his Minnesota roots. 

It's incredible how steady on his feet Syas is with his casts. He's been taking so many steps. 3 here. 5 there. It's beautiful. But I'm ready for him to be done with the casting so we can go swimming during these last couple weeks of summer. My child is a fish. With no fear. 

I learn so much from him, watching him live with abandon, not hindered in any way.

He even knows how to break dance. *Wink, wink.*

One of Those Days

It's been a good day. 

One of those days I played with the kids a lot!

One of those days I had time to clean at least a little.

One of those day when supper was in the oven before Ryan came home from work.

Today, I felt like a good mom and a good wife. Usually I feel like I'm one or the other.

It's been a good day.

I'm here. I really am. The last days, no weeks have felt crazy. I have lots of words and they are all spinning about my head waiting to be placed in their proper order.

The weather has been a bit cooler yesterday and today, and now I'm itching to write again. I'm not sure what it is about the hot and humid, but it makes me unmotivated for ALL THINGS, except the pool. And also strawberry lemonade from Trader Joes.

So while you are waiting for me to cool off, I'll leave you with this...

And also this.

We're Going on a Field Trip

It's no secret that we love Matilda Jane Clothing in our house.

(Ivy sporting some MJC and my winter hat).

Next Monday evening, Ivy and I will be hosting a Matilda Jane Trunk Show. Matilda Jane clothing can only be purchased through trunk shows right now, so if you're local, we'd love for you to attend. It'll be a fun evening of eating, hanging out and shopping! What could be better than that?

Send an email to briannamorrison(at)gmail(dot)com for more info.

If you'd like to place an order, but can't join us or aren't local, no problem. Just go to Matilda Jane Clothing's website, check out "the goods," make a wishlist, then email it to my address that's listed above. I'll be in contact with you shortly after to work out payment.

All orders must be placed no later than 5pm (CST) on August 9.

Like Oreos and Milk

Ryan leaves for kids camp tomorrow. The children and I have fun things planned while he's away, but it won't be the same without him. 

I love my husband.

And it's always better when we're together.
