To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony.

Sweet Baby Claire

Our sweet little Claire Bear is growing up way too fast...we can hardly keep up! She loves playing at church...and can't wait to play with the big kids.

She has discovered the cabinets and delights in pulling everything out...all the growing up has also brought about a need for discipline...something she doesn't care for all that much.
