Sleeping in every morning.
(Yes, 7:00am is "sleeping in" at our house. It's been glorious!)
Not having to rush the boys through every step of the making beds-eating breakfast-brushing teeth-getting dressed morning routine (which means that there is lots of time to look for, and even laugh about, Will's shorts when he somehow loses them in the five minutes between when I laid them out on his bed and when he went to put them on).
The shorts were finally located on the bathroom rug (where they were very well-camouflaged) after 20 minutes of us tearing apart Will's room looking for them this morning. I wonder how the sneaky shorts got there?
Buying a silly hat for Will when he fell in love with it at the party store where we were having fun looking for invitations for Noah's summer birthday.
How could I not buy it for him when he looks so cute in it?
Snacking on fresh green peas in the pod...
and sweet, juicy cherries. Mmmm.
Having the boys around home for lunch, rather than packing lunches the night before to send to school. It's so nice to have such good helpers and such cheerful company mid-day!
Noah made all the toast for today's lunch, and Will took great care and time to set the table the way he wanted to: "restaurant style", with the utensils all wrapped up in the napkins. :)
Water fights and all the crazy laughter that comes with them.
Beautiful butterflies on garden blooms.
and the funny faces that result when kids use the popsicles to draw mustaches and beards on themselves.
Catching up on magazine reading in the welcoming shade of a friendly tree.
Having time to sit and think.... or tell fortunes, as Will likes to do.
Apparently my future involves moving to the countryside and eating sushi, and Noah is going to be an Olympic swimmer.
Delicious family dinners cooked on the grill.
