I love that once they are all ready for school in the morning the kids often gather in the family room for a few moments of tv. Even at age 9 1/2 and even with a room full of furniture, they still choose to sit together in one chair.
Friday was full of joy: it was Friday! Tom and I had a birthday lunch with Laura! We enjoyed homemade hot chocolate! Tom and I had a date night at Salt of the Earth! The kids had a campfire with grandma and grandpa Mosher!
