Real Treasure

Rounding out PIRATE WEEK -- let's face it... a pirate's life is all about treasure. And whether it's coins or shells or jellyfish bits, my boy is always (and I mean ALWAYS) on the hunt for treasure.

Sometimes he gets discouraged... "I'll never find a REAL pirate treasure mama!"
But in the end I always tell him the same thing, the real treasure is the love in your heart. And I finally knew he understood when he looked me in the eye and said, "I'm your treasure aren't I?"

Ay, that you are me hearty. That you are.

Hello there! I've been following your blog for a bit now (don't remember how I found you) and I'm really enjoying your stories, the way you're raising Zach etc. He seems to be such a great kid! Although I didn't grow up on a boat (unfortunately), I was raised in a Waldorf household/school and can appreciate the choices you have made. You're obviously doing a good job! Looking forward to more stories. Martha

I love the shot of him hunting for treasure with the bag on his shoulder. Oh that we could all realize what our treasure is; there might be much less materialism and "keeping up with the Joneses" out there. Thanks for the reminder!
