If I had to rate yesterday on a scale of 1 to 10 I would give it an 8. Almost a 9. 8½. It really was a great day. Why? It started out with this cute boy. Drummer did some serious sleeping today. So nice, as much as we love to chew on him.
It was early release day so I picked the girlies up from school and we went to get the car washed. I pulled into the vacuuming station and began barking orders. YOU hold Drummer. YOU dry the windows. YOU clear the floors so I can vacuum. YOU just don't make extra messes. Everyone was cooperative and we were outta there in minutes with tidier traveling in tow. Plus we found a bunch of missing shoes, socks, ribbon and hair rubber bands.
After lunch some of the baby Dills played nicely outside in our 70 degree weather. When I told Olive she couldn't have pierced earrings she caught some little clip-ons. Oh, the creativity of these girls.
Then Pearl and I got some sewing in! She's been working on some fun projects lately, her own doing.I loved it, sewing side by side with my Pearlie. A sneak peek at what she's working on:
And a sneak peek at what I'm working on for Once Upon a Thread.
Then, Ryan came home a mite early and had dinner planned--that's the hardest part for me. If someone would just plan really yummy meals and shop for them I don't mind cooking! We got the kids in bed early and had some nice quiet time. There were a few bumps in the day, but hardly noticeable with the surrounding pleasantness. It's days like these that carry me through and remind me how very blessed we are and what joy it is to be together as a family.
