It was an uneventful day, but there were a few things that stood out for me.
I don't want to forget them because that is how I forget the beauty in every day.
**Jonas was home sick. He lay on the couch all day looking and feeling ill. He was so calm and quiet. Not like my normal joni, who is usually loud and energetic. Still nice to hang out with him during the day.
**I was finishing up washing the dishes when Paloma walked up because she needed to wash her hands. She got up on her stool next to me, washed her hands, then began helping me with the last of the dishes. She was so happy she managed to clean a pot. Showing me with eye's wide and a smile to match.
**After working on Angus' home work, we began working on upper and lower case sight recognition. He recognized all but four letters. I was so proud of him. He's also getting better in sounding out his sight words. He's so smart and funny.
**only thing is Angy was telling me he didn't like how long school is and I agree but I just tried to encourage him. I wish he went only half the day. I feel like my baby is forced to leave me for so many hours when he is still so little.
The end. For today at least.

Miah was in the Arizona Republic today.
The kids and I drove to buy it because we were excited their daddy was in the newspaper. Of course, he was out working so he heard about it over the phone from his proud pops, Jerry.
Jeremiah has worked so hard creating a name for himself. It's funny because he has been in many magazines and we get equally excited about them, but it was special to let family and friends know they can pick up the local paper and see him in it.
Love Cycles truly is a representation of the hard work and perseverance he has put forth. I remember when he first started working on motorcycles in our back porch. With a dream of creating and visions he had of bikes he would love to own. He started putting together bikes and selling them. Many people liked his work and soon a few of them asked him to build them a bike.
I remember the day he decided on the name for his shop: love cycles. I was not surprised. You often hear of motorcycle shops with tough or rough or too cool names that are meant to represent the ruggedness that is associated with motorcycles, but not his shop. It would be all about love. A love for old motorcycles, for riding them, working on them and being inspired to re-create what once was, with his own spin to each one.
He has come a long way from that back porch. He has a business that he should be so proud of because it was created with his own two hands. It has brought with it the rigor associated with owning a business, but it has also brought many wonderful experiences that could not have happened otherwise.
The kids and I are proud of all of his hard work. We have nothing but gratitude, but most of all love for our Miah.
