“The happiness of life is made up of minute fractions — the little soon forgotten charities of a kiss or smile, a kind look, a heartfelt compliment, and the countless infinitesimal of pleasurable and genial feeling.”
This summer has flown by, and now that fall is creeping up on us, I feel the need to make a list of the small things I missed here on the blog, but that i am so grateful for.
Baby friends (aka forced cousins, or maybe arranged marriages).
This girl, who has the best laugh, and who is just starting to give us a peek into her thoughts.
Our amazing garden, brought to you by neglect and decent weather.
Birthday parties with piñatas
This girl, who is so thoughtful and kind. I have to remind myself daily that she is six, still so little.
Watching these relationships form, these bonds strengthen.
Pool days with friends.
This girl, who is as fancy as she is ornery. Who else would wear a party dress to the park on a cold Tuesday, and then play in the splash pad after being told “No” 15 times?
This guy, who somehow makes everything more fun.
A new sister-in-law
Our very productive chickens
And Penny. Penny Penny Pen-a-roo. What was our life without her? I can not remember.
Are we all caught up now?
