... we were all up bright and early, thanks to the sun coming up shortly after 5 am these days.
... we did more "summer-break-deep-cleaning-and-decluttering" all morning.
... the three oldest boys are now working on finishing the last of their school work up (this is our last week).
... the three little girls are napping - even Miriam, because she is not feeling well.
... baby Stephen is ripping everything off the bookshelf within his reach. *** Correction: I asked my husband, who was working at his office, to come pick baby up and take him off my hands, so I could have some peace. Being the ultimate sweetie that my husband is, he did just that. ***
... we are having a BBQ, fire pit, night swimming, roasting s'mores, and eating ice-cream in homemade waffle cones as soon as nap time is over.
... I have a biting, teething nursling - OUCH! I may be mom, but I am not a teething ring.
... we have wonderfully cool and cloudy weather for this time of year.
... there are tadpoles frolicking in a jar on our kitchen counter, growing, eating, entertaining, and providing free, hands-on education.
... I have this to brighten my kitchen because my husband just never goes to the grocery store for me without also picking up flowers for me.
... we have many more blessings that time would fail me to list.
Hope you have a wonderful day with friends and loved ones!
