thankful for LEARNING. all of us. on so many levels we are learning, our minds being stretched, and I love that. i am thankful for it. and for today, Stephen and i are literally BEAMING with joy to watch Hannah learn and write her letters. it was such a pure unexpected joy how good it would feel to watch her learn and be curious. it gave me a tiny glimmer of school stuff and a huge hope that she'll ever let me help with it (HA, yeah right). my inner nerd can be released again (actually she has already informed me that i was boring her with all the election talk). Here is a short clip of practicing writing the alphabet.i truly think I'll pass out when i get her first note to me.
