being on the freshman basketball team has proved to be a lot of fun. this is the start of four years, that will go far too fast for my mama heart i am sure. fifteen with one foot out the door, on his way to manhood and all that life has to offer. i feel time and my first born slipping through my fingers, and it is hard, like really hard. in one corner i am so excited to see what becomes of his world and in the other corner i want to freeze time and never let him go. the letting go is hard. it’s inevitable i know, and it’s all part of the journey, and it’s all starting now. i feel like i have so much to teach, so much to prepare him for, but also learn to take a back seat at the right time because mistakes are necessary and can, at times, teach him more than my words.
marley was in her first musical. she played princess dadhu in Aladdin. it was so fun watching her up on stage doing her thing and quietly cheering her on from our seats.

we started off our day at La Brea Tarpits checking out all the fossils and imagining what life would have been like all those years ago. it is hard to imagine all those animals roaming around what is now our fast paced city jam packed with tons of people. then we made our way over to the farmers market for some lunch before heading home.
