Bookends and Butterflies

Somedays I struggle with the age range between my four kids. Their needs and interests are so different and it can feel overwhelming to jump from nursery rhymes to adverbs. Last week I observed a sweet time between Malia and Drew, the bookends of our kids. We were in front of our neighbors' house and noticed that there were a lot of butterflies in their butterfly bushes. The three of us stood and observed them flutter and land and eat. Malia helped point them out to Drew. It was so sweet for my soul to have these two, separated by over 7 years in age, observe and enjoy the same simple thing.
