1160 getting the back yard mowed (grass just looks so much more inviting all newly mowed!)
1161 first load of laundry hanging on the clothesline to dry today, which had the kids literally jumping about with delight, saying, "It's summer, then?"
1162 the warmth of the sunshine and big, fluffy white clouds moving across the sky.
1163 sitting on the back steps with Isaac, listening to him read to me from a BOB book, and smiling over his delight over the pictures and story.
1164 sitting on a blanket on the grass with my Audra-girl... enjoying the sunshine and my little one's enthusiastic "mah-mee!" as she climbs all over me.
1165 finding Adelia's purple dress-up shoes and purple Dora watch on my bed this afternoon and wondering when she was in here, depositing those treasures?
1166 remembering Audra's delight when she stood by Mark's side of the bed this morning, pulled on a crinkly bag, and a whole bunch of jelly belly's tumbled onto the floor! and how fast she crammed her fists and mouth full. when Adelia (from atop the bed) asked for some, Audra wagged her little head no and clenched her fist tighter. to which Adelia promptly reached over, pried her fingers open, and plucked one free- popping it in her mouth, declaring: "Got it. Mmm!"
1167 Ella and Audra, sitting on the couch today reading books together, Audra giggling over Ella's antics.
1168 the satisfaction of coming in from the yard to a still-tidy living room. (One of the great joys of warmer weather: the inside of the house stays cleaner!)
