Back to the Blog


Hi All,
So I guess it is about time I get back to blogging. Over the next few days I'll try to catch up on lots of stuff. I have a ton to post about. But I'm not going to write about what has happened in my family with the deaths of my two cousins. It just isn't Blog Material. So I'm just not going to blog about it. I am o.k. We (us five Johnson-McCormicks) are all o.k. We've weathered the epi-center of the storm. And now we're trying to get settled into a "new normal" (as my aunt calls it). Yesterday I painted with the boys in the garage -- per their request. Photo above was taken by me toward the end of their painting session. Their paintings were unlike anything they've ever done before. Completely 100% totally different than anything they've ever painted previously. Things like what has happened to us over the past couple of weeks seem to have a way of pushing people into a new place. That's true whether you're 4 months old, 4 years old, or 37 years old. That is all I'm going to write about that topic. Anyway, thanks for checking in, thanks for reading, and look for lots of catch-up posts (with lots of photos) over the next few days.

Do you record what they describe when they paint or their titles to their paintings? I imagine that the feelings they have that are not associated--yet--with language--are being illustrated in their painting.

Glad you are back. Gosh, don't apologize for healing in private.

The boys seem to not mind having their pictures taken. Do they often ask you to take photos of them? When my son was in middle school he hated having his picture taken. Now that he's in high school he's gotten better. We don't take as many as you do, although I wish we did.

Welcome back home, Heather. Grace, peace, love and joy to you and yours.
And oh, I love Kyle's painting--both but looks like Kyle got into textures and strokes. I love the creative outlets.
Hugs,
Me at Chapter Two
