Pockets of Quiet...
Our daughter had hot chocolate for a mid-morning snack the other day and before she enjoyed it, she lit the candle, set out a napkin and spoon, scooted the vase of flowers closer to her place setting, and requested the camera to take a picture of her little tableau. She comes by it honestly!
It has been raining for days here and I kind of don't mind. After our school is done, we've been enjoying the luxury of having nothing going on. The summer is going to be a busy one for us with a couple of trips and lots of visitors, so these little pockets of quiet are definitely savored.
The trio has been watching American Ninja Warrior with us (not something that I would have ever thought that I would enjoy!) and they spend hours after every episode setting up couch cushion courses to conquer. They have even commandeered the crib mattress my niece uses for a bed when she visits as the final climb challenge. They take turns announcing one another and commenting on each performance. It's super cute and very funny to watch!
