Favorite friends: A family in church whose last name rhymes with "Need" who invited us over for the afternoon.
Favorite meal: Blueberry muffins for breakfast that I made the night before- no dishes, no messy clothes, happy children.
Favorite clothes: White Land's End dress shirts for the boys to wear to church, from the grandmother that lives with "The Fishing Grandpa".
Favorite conversation: Talking with a person whose name rhymes with "sellin'" about enjoying my family and my role as a mother.
Favorite Scene: Rachel drinking from the dog bowl.
Favorite activity: Watching a girl whose name rhymes with "stain" boil maple syrup.
Favorite thing I learned today: Details about sheep shearing and cutting their tails off.
Favorite time of the day: 9:30pm- When I pulled in the driveway and knew the children would be in bed soon.
Favorite quote from James: (half asleep) No! I want to stay here and sleep. (he said this in the van and refused to get out. In fact, I almost couldn't drag him out because he was convinced that he was actually in his bed.)
Favorite quote from Rachel: "I'm a kiddo."
Favorite comment from Jeff: (actually it was best when he finally stopped asking for more food some three hours after lunch was completed)
Favorite Snapshot with imaginary camera: Jonathon trying to feed a sheep some hay.
Favorite Hymn at church: Great is thy Faithfulness, for that part, "morning by morning, new mercies I see".
Today was exhausting and wonderful all rolled together. I wouldn't change much except I might not have put James' pjs on so soon and then see him go back outside in the mud and thus have to put different pjs on before he went to bed.
Life is good.
