Welcome to my blog! My name is Esther and I'm so happy you are here. I'm an avid nature photographer and a daydreaming thinker. My posts revolve around photos of nature's beauty, homeschooling adventures with my 2 kids, sporadic reflections on my child's heart condition, Bible reading reflections, gardening feats, and other mish mash things. Hopefully you'll leave encouraged, pensive, or smiling at the simple things of life. Thank you for stopping by and hope you'll find some interesting posts to read!

    1. This tree is the perfect height and has enough solid branches for holding on. Elliot climbs one tree by our house but getting up on the branch is troublesome. I helped a few times…no way! My back resisted.
      Chris helped Ellis up onto the tree; if you look at it closely, you could see her nervous to sit on that branch. I like how you called it a “switcheroo.”

      1. I think I remember you said one time that the kids wanted to climb this tree in a comment to me awhile ago (or maybe a post). I have never climbed a tree as a kid – we didn’t have any in Canada as it was a new sub and we had no grass and all clay when we moved in and we left when I was ten. So no trees at home to climb on, nor nearby. Likely my parents would have said “no” to the idea if they got wind of it – they were so strict. Clumsy me says I’d likely have fallen and broken an arm. Probably Ellis realizes that a broken arm or leg would result in a protracted hospital stay and could cause complications and, for someone who has logged a lot of hospital time in her young life for her heart condition, she wanted to “jolly along” but was apprehensive about doing so.
