OUTSIDE FOR GRANTED Posted on July 14, 2014 by Nate.
Since the weather has been getting really nice, we have started to hang out in the backyard with the lil’ man. It’s the time right before summer where we are not melting away yet from the Texas sun. Laying out on a blanket looking up at the sky and the things around us, I’m watching Kade’s eyes and reactions to the outside world and it really got me thinking. I start to realize the small things in life. The stuff we rarely have time to notice or even enjoy. Wind blowing in his face causing him to catch his breath. Trees swaying with the sun shining through the limbs of leaves. The sky being a wonderful blue hue as the canvas for all these things. You can tell Kade studies every single thing he lays his eyes on. He’s taking it all in like a little sponge. Him laughing as the wind blows just melts me away. We sure won’t be able to do this for too much longer, so soak it all up lil’ man. Welcome to the world!
