Present in the Here

Fridays I fluctuate between Five Minute Fridays and InstaFriday. But we are all community here, right? They can be combined into one post.
So I write for Five minute, no edits, no re dos and at the end I will see if there are pictures from this week that match the words of this week.

Topic: Here

I want to be present in the Here. The everyday moments that define who we are and what we are.

Yes, Mouse will remember our big trips each year and I am so happy in the fact that we can provide those opportunities to her. But it is the everyday moments that really mean the most.
Taking the time to do breakfast out after a morning at the dentist. She will remember the breakfast and not the fear of brace's wire.  
 Working on her derby car as a family and being there to cheer her on. She will remember the research of bat mobiles and thumbs up, not that her car came in third each race.
Stopping for some geocaching on a long day of shopping with Mom and Dad. She will remember that she asked us to stop for a geocache and we did, not that we trekked from store to store.

Being mind of the Here is hard sometimes, we are task orientated and busy, but I am learning to slow down.

I fail and stumble. I get frustrated and annoyed at the delays some days. I am human.

But the next moment starts a new Here and I will try again.
