This week we are at our church camp meeting. We are staying in our RV trailer for a week and actually having a lot of fun with the other campers from churches around Washington state. My Princess has a Kindergarten class happening three times per day all week. She LOVES it! When you get to send your child to class three times per day, that makes parenting a lot easier for the week! Parenting can be stressful, can’t it?
I stopped by her class 5 minutes early to spy on her. They were finishing class with a game of “Sharks and Minnows” – which looked like a fun twist on tag. I watched her run her little heart out and get from one side to the next on the field without being touched. The last round had 5 kids left (out of 30) and my Princess was the only girl with four other boys. She is tall, with long legs, and she is a fast runner so I wasn’t surprised. In fact, I was really proud of her. With a smile on her face, I brought her a bottle of water and gave her a big hug at the end.
The smile on my face was huge too. I realized that it is all these little moments in parenting that make it all worthwhile. The little moments like baking with her or watching my Princess marbling her own tank top at our local library, or even just reading the first How to Train Your Dragon book together – those are them memories I’ll cherish. These are the moments that make being a mom to this girl extraordinary.
To show my love and pride for my Princess, I created this one-of-a-kind video with our family pictures at the Stanford’s Children’s Health website. As a parent, I am sure you know that your kid is extraordinary too. Show them how much you enjoy every moment together by creating a special video of your own! In fact, get them involved with picking out the photos! It is so easy to make a custom video. You just need to pick 6 photos, upload them, fill in the blanks for great text – and Voila! – you have an awesome video.

It is a big stress relief knowing you have an excellent hospital near by for your little ones. I live near Nashville, TN so we has Vanderbilt which is amazing!

What a sweet post, I completely agree because time flies! I wish there was a pause button!
Oh I couldn’t agree with you more about making memories and showing our kids how much they bless our lives. Your video is adorable. I love the pink and purple toes at the end.
Thanks, Heather. Those are our toes. We like to do fun toes on “Girl’s Night”.
What a sweet post. I hoped that you shared it with your daughter. I loved your quote as well.
Yes, Melissa, I did. I also love that quote too. So true!

It is a relief knowing that there is a way to help your child in case of an emergency. We just went through needing a great hospital.

The little things are the best

I know my parents made lots of deposits in my childhood memory banks. Glad you doing the same.
Rebecca Parsons says
It is the little things that can make a day so much better. Kids have a light in them and it is great to watch and see it grow. I cherish those moments more than the big ones. I cherish the big ones but the little ones are something you will look back on.
