Our Kindergarten Rhythm

This is how I imagine our days…

They are full of magical moments. Sometimes it does seem like the wind is blowing just so and the wonder of nature is all around us. Most days though I am distracted by my mental to-do list and am trying to keep Hannah and Noah from beating each other up (yes they already fight!).

This is my daily, hourly struggle- how to really stay present in the moment. Today I left the computer off, hid the phone and ignored the messy kitchen that was screaming my name. It was a terrific day. There were no fights, no nagging and I really had fun with my kids.
