a brief mid-day hike


20130518-071549.jpgAs I brushed my teeth the other day, I noticed my shirt was inside out. This is how life feels right now, the same shape and design only with all the frayed threads exposed. Life in our new home is still coming together. At least, we are all working hard toward that end, rearranging, unpacking, cleaning out, etc. In the meantime, we’re still spending some time outdoors — a constant we’re all craving these days. With 10 people under one roof, new rhythms and routines take time to grow. But they are growing and establishing. And so are we.

I took these images on a little mid-day hike with Kristen and our kids near our parent’s house last week. You’ll find one of them on Spilled Milk this week.
