“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

Precious moments

I wish I had a picture to go with this one, but the opportunity wasn't there.

For all that our children are perfectly normal, in not wanting to share toys, parents, books, space or whatever at particular times - they also have an incredible love for each other even at this age. Things they will do and say for each other that just warm my heart, and make me know we are doing something right.

Tonight's example was at bedtime - when, instead of the normal fight between mom & dad on who she wanted to take her upstairs, Kyleigh looked at Jacob and clearly said "Jacob hold my hand."

And they walked hand in hand the whole way upstairs - no fighting or arguing, just an older brother helping his little sister to their room, and being happy together.
