Cause there's beauty in the breakdown

Outside day. So thankful that our pal came over and used his tiller on our garden spot. It would have taken me all day Saturday with the kiddos. (Who am I kidding? Joe would have had gotten stuck with it!) Finn has finally started to ride his bike. He was a late bloomer with the bike riding department. He never really wanted to ride his trike or any other pedal type contraption. Just last week he started feeling confidant and is now soaring around the driveway and yard. My heart swells. Every night after dinner we have walked across the street to the giant church parking lot and had a blast watching Finn ride. He goes so far from me like a little spot on the horizon..like a glaring suggestion of the future.

Love, not just the boy on the bike but that rockin cape!
It is so bittersweet to watch them ride away from us.
I hear you.

I love the song you quoted. Frou Frou is a fav of mine.

And like the comment above me.. that line of glaring suggestion of the future hit home hard.
