Gloria asleep with her thumb. Charlotte jumping Bailey at horse lessons. Ruthie being sprayed off after playing in the pig mud. Girls at an indigo dyeing class at the quilt museum. Tommy DIYing our trampoline springs. Jimmy cut all those pool noodles and there was a joint effort to put them on.When I pulled out the rubbermaids to go through the off-season clothes, the kids were delighted to see boxes of books that they hadn’t seen in years. It was so fun to watch them sit there for hours pouring over pages and forgotten titles like they had rediscovered an old friend.
