The 52 Project: A portrait of my children once a week & every week in 2014.
Lena: After a walk to the playground last week, we stopped in the fish market across the street to buy something for dinner. This time I chose sardines, which I’ve never cooked before. As the fishmonger gutted and beheaded them for me, Lena asked to sit up on the counter to watch him. She’s holding a sardine in her hand! This photo captures so much of our everyday life in Sicily for me right now, fresh fish, countertop observation, and curious children included.
Gil: Last week Gil practiced walking in the gigantic Piazza del Duomo towards St. Agatha’s Cathedral. (Video of this moment is on Instagram too!) I love that he’s taking his first steps in the cultural grandeur of a European piazza! Where else will he walk in his life? I pray for his steps, his vocation, his friends, and his faith every day.
