hoping to fly

he has had an unquenchable thirst for flying after having watched a pippy longstocking show last month.
he has been trying ever since, and came up beside me yesterday asking if i could help him put on some wings so that he could go outside and fly.
there are so many things about this that touch me so deep.
one of them being that we are really learning about how much "failure" brings us closer to our own place of power in this home. me and the children...i see it in us daily.
we are coming to know that we must do our own work...and that doing our best, giving our honest effort toward living out our integrity, is the greatest flight of all.
he will keep trying to fly.
i know this about him.
and i will watch as he learns the grace of being gentle with himself when he falls.
for a few more images of his winged dreams, please do visit here !

I love the fairy wings and the truck in the same photo - I'm so glad you were able to capture such a pure moment! It's hard to watch our sons creep daily closer to failure, to conformity, and to self-conciousness. I am so taken by this moment where Asher is free to romp around the backyard just being Asher. Well done chica
