everybody loves Brenda and her kids. Brenda is the strongest woman, most capable mother, kindest friend, purest heart and always, always the life of the party. You can read a little about her here but honestly, it should be a book.
Last week Brenda was over for dinner and in between singing and dancing in the kitchen and challenging my boys to chess and ping pong she sat down and listened to a dispute between Ben and me. And after weighing it out she said, “Sorry Michelle, you were clearly wrong.” And I love that about her; I love that she tells me the truth.
the cast of characters– Trevor 4: spunky, smart and incredibly compassionate. The hallmarks of Brenda’s parenting are kindness and compassion.
Porter, 9: The next lead on comedy central. And an AWESOME dancer. I tell you, the kid has moves.
Luke, 12: Can’t you see it in his eyes? Kind, humble, gentle. Let’s just hand over the entire free world to this kid in 30 years and we’ll all be fine.
Leisl, 15: Stefan tells me that every boy in the 9th grade takes turns at having a crush on Leisl. She’s the real deal– beautiful, talented and GOOD.
we’re printing up a different one– but this is my personal fav of Porter.
we tried a dozen different, creative poses for the family shot but agreed on this simple, yummy perfection. Look at Leisl– she just glows.
