sage has this friend, whom i first heard of as "bryan-behind-the-fence", that lives directly behind our house. they have become fast friends. crying out each other's name as soon as they get outside. they played, faithfully everyday through the fence---sharing toys and laughing and not thinking it at all strange that there was a chain link wall between them. but, today, sage learned to climb the fence.

Sage at her first harp recital. Her school has partnered with Cleveland Institute of Music to provide free music lessons (any instrument) for the kids. Sage choose the harp because the teacher was wearing a pink sweater. She has been taking lessons all school year, once a week for thirty minutes. Intentionally un-intense and relaxed approach to music and lessons. So on Friday she got up and introduced herself and her piece and then played a beautiful, simple song on the harp. I am gushing with pride.

We are working here on Sage's costume. Fairy skirt from bubble wrap and green plastic bags and wings from nylons stretched over wire coat hangers. Can I just take this space to say that I love my Sagey. She is so creative and fun and kind and interested.
