September 4, 2013

On the second day of school the kids were a little more tired.  After school we enjoyed a snack and then really just wanted to snuggle up for a while.  It was wonderful.  Dinner was cooking away in the crock pot and we savored a little down time.  After we ate the boys headed out to football practice and the girls enjoyed playing at home.  The girls were getting a little restless so we decided to bike over to the park.  I loved taking a few minutes to just watch the girls.  I didn't read my book, or look at my phone.  I soaked up their crazy laughter and giggles.  I was present to their calls of, "LOOK MOM!"  On the bike ride home we laughed and played a little jingle with our bike bells.  These are the moments that come to mean so much more when the kids are in school all day.  Tonight I am thankful.
