I've been thinking a lot about energy and how all of us are an extension of the earth. My thoughts are too lengthy for this blog post, I think, but I loved Libby's post about light recently. I was reminded of it when I took this picture of Jack today. Can you see the light in his face?
Almost two years ago, this little seedling came up through the woodchips at my in-laws. His dad said we should take it home. It had a great little shape and I loved the thought of it starting at their home and living at ours. Kind of like Cory did. My mom took a seedling from her parents house when they retired to Michigan, and now it's one of the largest trees in her yard.
Anyway, we had to transplant it from its temporary spot in the backyard, and moved it here. The boys are helping to water it. They will help it grow, and as it does, I intend to chronicle their life with it.
They are in it and it is in them.
