8/52 a portrait a week

"a portrait of my children once a week, every week, in 2014"

Jackson: this blurry iPhone shot was taken around 7am Saturday morning. We were just about to say goodbye for the day/night before Jackson got into another vehicle to travel to Victoria with his team for hockey. Just Jack & I rode to town to drop him off that morning and it usually takes around 15 minutes from our place to town. I always like to be the one to see him off when he travels without us. Silly Love Songs came on the radio and we talked about going to the Paul McCartney concert the 4 of us. I told him we were so lucky to have seen him and he and Lily extremely lucky to say that their first concert ever was Sir Paul's. Then just as Paul sang " I love you" my beautiful boy taps my arm and points to his eye, crosses his arms then points at me. I always struggle to send him away without us but now he'd pushed me to tears. He's such a kind, sensitive and loving 10 year old.  He has this tough guy hockey exterior and he's a much bigger guy then many in his age group but deep down he's pretty damn amazing. I cried the rest of the journey to town til we hit the Tim Horton's drive thru to buy a treat for the ferry and we realized we'd forgotten his lunch in the fridge at home which meant we needed to scramble fast to get something together for his trip. 
I'm so very proud of him and the great little big man he is. 

Lily: loving the snow that fell this weekend and all the time 
she got to spend with her girlfriends while her bro was away. 

As ever, joining along with Jodi and others over at Practising Simplicity
and just starting over at I Heart Snapping Living Arrows project .
