Free

I love this page. My journaling is hidden on a tag under the picture. While watching my children play I was struck by the freedoms that children have.
My journaling reads:
To be as free as a child.Free to run,play,slide,swing.
To be free to laugh,giggle,cry,yell,enjoy.
To be free of fear,worry,stress.
To be free to experience life and all it's wonders.

A Boy's Hair Story.

This was my entry for the Rebus challenge for Creative Idol. I love how it turned out and I never would have thought to journal in this manner if not for the challenge.

Here is the translation if you are having trouble.

Once upon a time there lived a little boy named Kayne. He had big eyes. He was a little monkey. One day he wanted to do his hair so he could be handsome like his daddy. He went into the bathroom and turned the water on so he could wet his hair.Then he put some gel in and began to comb his hair. First he combed it one way and then the other way. He combed his hair till his spikes were just right.Once he decided that he was as handsome as could bee he came downstairs to find his mommy and show her what he had done. She was very surprised. She laughed and gave the little boy named Kayne a hug and they lived happily ever after. The end.
