The last week has been spent ...

enjoying :: that each one of the kids would rather play outside than in when the sun is shining.

wondering :: how such a slob came from my loins (yes, mother, I realize you too must have wondered this).

savoring :: Alysse's need to be one of the girls, but a marcher to the beat of her own drum at the same time.

teaching :: no, that Cheerio found underneath your seat in the car is not an acceptable snack.

admiring :: how Alivia sees the world ... each gold finch at a time.

pondering :: how it is that I immediately know the thrower of the orange peel that flew into my lap during lunch(from the opposite end of the table, nonetheless).

cooking :: new recipe after new recipe from (if I turn up missing, I've run off to Oklahoma to meet this woman).

refereeing :: fights, disagreements and wars. Why is it that a long-forgotten toy always becomes the most popular when it's found in someone else's hands?

planting :: the window boxes are back, people.

vacuuming :: the endless supply of sequins and paper bits that are the byproduct of preschool artwork.

watching :: Trace with his new John Deere tractor and wagon. Tears are shed each time he must part with it ... the boy L-O-V-E-S this thing.

reading :: our newest favorite, "Martha Doesn't Say Sorry!" (not sure if it's a good sign or a bad sign that this resonates so well).

loving :: that I've already heard the "secret" song Alena and her classmates will sing to their moms during Friday's upcoming "Muffins with Mom" event.
