We've had a lot of lovely little people among us this weekend. I'm a tiny bit weary, but it's the very high-quality sort of weary, if you know what I mean. Miss Bug holding her sweet little cousin makes my heart grow a few sizes.
I've never had such robust pumpkin blossoms in my garden. I know my jack-o-lantern anticipation is borderline-silly, but I can't help myself!
Sam and Plum Cake were sweet gems when it came to bedtime. Their parents were out somewhere sleeping in a tent, but they were tucked up with us in the second best bed (remember that from Anne of Green Gables?) I read them a sweet book Mags sent me years ago titled You Are Special. So dear. I said prayers over them as they were falling sleep and they listened keenly.
Yes, we took care of their petty pet, too. Thumbelina the pom pom. She's needy.
Three at the Saturday morning breakfast table. James LOVED having fellow little people to interact with.
Look at how cute he is! Little walking man.
We went to different parks A LOT. Sam likes to make new friends and she immediately introduces herself. So sweet. I met some moms and grannies at the different parks. Plum LOVES parks and never wants to leave once we get there! She is a true spider monkey on the play structures! Even when I was in my 20's, I don't think I climbed the ladders/stairs and slid down the slides. Granny stands close by and cheers.
I slept on the sofa so I could hear them if they woke up. The dog slept with me. I feel a little crooked after sinking into all that softness all night, two nights in a row.
Our son in law, Bry, said that he read that SITTING is the new cancer and everyone needs to sit less, move more. Well, it seems obvious, but I like my moving to be purposeful, but I sure can do a lot of purposeful things while sitting. Anyway, I am going to purposefully walk down the aisles at the grocery store and then purposefully pick up all the toys in the family room. After that, I'll resist the temptation to sit again. Do you sit a lot?
Oh, and we went to the pool. Sam and Plum wore their Puddle Jumpers and floated on the rafts, Birdie had a pool noodle, Bug had a floatie, and Millie had her Puddle Jumper. We all held on to each other and created a granny flotilla. All connected. All happy. Aw!
Thank you for poking your head in. I like it when you do.
