I found this a bit eerie; these two pictures are almost exactly a year apart and were taken in the exact same spot at the Fort Worden Bunkers. The trees have grown a bit more, Silas' hair has certainly grown A LOT more, and last, but not least - our social prospects have DEFINITELY grown.
May 2009 - Silas is newly liberated from school, my parenting habits are still quite controlling and I'm anxious about everything. Seth is stressed and trying to transition into this new life we're building, all while working a 40 hour week outside the home. We all feel isolated and unsure.
April 2010 - Silas is coming into his own, learning how to handle the freedom to be himself. Seth is relaxing and figuring out how to balance the crazy that emanates from both Si and I. I'm also learning - learning to trust both of the guys and myself, learning to take deep breaths and slow down a little, learning to let go.
