my shadow

anna has been my shadow all day long.

this morning we gathered and sorted laundry together and made beds. then we planted our vegetable garden and sunflower and pumpkin seeds.

later we drew silly pictures in the driveway with sidewalk chalk. flowers, mermaids, monkeys.

ben watched contently from the stroller.

we watched josh and the boys run from yard to yard and play an impromptu baseball game at the neighbor's.

the weather has been perfect. we all have farmer's tans and pink cheeks. flipflops are all back to being the shoes of choice.

the kids gorge themselves on hotdogs and capri suns. and they are all in bed at 8pm with no whining, exhausted from the sun and carefree afternoon.

summer is here and it feels great.
