A couple of weeks ago Alex and I pretty much just hung out together at the lake. We sketched and hiked and cooked and ate and watched a movie or 2. I even helped him create his own sketching blog. There was this part of me that kept telling me that there are so many other things I should be doing but I kept pushing that voice away. I am aware that soon Alex will have his own circle of friends that he will want to be with and his own "to do" list that he'll want to attend to. That he wants to hang out with Papa right now and do these things is pretty cool and worth paying attention to.
