We had a light, relaxed Sunday dinner outside on the patio tonight. And enjoyed our new patio furniture.

Atticus and I played "tickle" tonight at bedtime. He kept wanting "more!more!" His laughter was infectious. We just played and played on the floor. And had the best time making memories.

Gotta love giant boxes for clubhouses. And for getting along.

Today I had such a hard day with the kids. And I felt crummy, too. There was not much to smile about it seemed. But. I did manage to clean out my spice drawer. And it was so beautiful when I finished! As I told Paul when he got home, "Sadly, the clean spice drawer was the bright spot in my day." To which he replied, ever consistent with his character, "At least you had a bright spot."

First, a little library fun.
Then I put the boys to work gathering more big rocks from the back yard FOR the front slope. And while they did that, I proceeded to trim the hedges in the front, which was a HUGE undertaking, let me tell ya.
I think Gabe and Atticus were mostly there for moral support.

Friends from ballet class graciously asked us to come to their house to have our lunch, since a realtor was going to be showing our house at that time. We ALL enjoyed our play time together.
Later this afternoon, Noah and I took our "school" outside on the patio, which was much more enjoyable and peaceful for ME, I have to admit. Hmm...
He's really not this jubilant over school work. I promise. (That would be the day!!) No, he was just feeling teased because I was taking his picture, and he hates that. And I always get my way (not really) and do whatever I can to make him laugh and smile for the camera. (It's loads of fun.)

Saylor and I stood in the heat (with a high of "sweltering") to consign a handful of items at Rhea Lana today. I've donated so much stuff lately that when it came time to pick out some things to consign, I really had trouble coming up with enough suitable items. (I guess that's a GOOD thing!) I did convince Saylor to part with her lion cub so she could make some money of her own. It didn't take much convincing. :) She's been looking for a way to earn some money. And when you're six, the opportunities are few and far between. I love that she's not attached to her stuff. It helps.
And...I'm preparing for a birthday party. Working on the invitation... Can you guess the theme?
Okay. That's it. Two things:
