Light as a feather

Today I had the privilege to witness something which made my heart sing.

Ted and Magnus playing a spontaneous and very simple, beautiful game together and sharing a lot of love and enthusiasm while doing it.

We were all up playing under the big Peppercorn tree at the end of the morning when Magnus picked up a feather.  He walked over to show me and this immediately got Ted's attention. 

Magnus is full hearted and generous in the way he relates and as he told me about his feather, Ted's eyes sparkled.  It's like he was listening to the best news in the world from a kindred spirit.

Magnus then walked with his feather and threw it into the air.  The wind caught it ... and carried it ... and it danced some before landing.  Both boys were ecstatic seeing this and Magnus called, 'I made my feather fly!'  Ted, who adores Magnus immediately went to ground in search of his own feather.

Soon both boys were standing in an open space on a nearby walking path, each throwing a feather to the wind and watching the beauty of their feather in flight.  There was no race, no competition no first and no last ... ... just two excited little hearts in awe of the gift of mother nature and what it did to the feather after it had left their own hands.

 ... and where were the three girls ?  Well Dakota was Taxi driving and taking Monique on a trip with Jyra bouncing around inside, outside and alongside the Taxi ...

That was until Dakota realised she needed a Maxi-Taxi ...
