It was a languid afternoon, drenched in sun, free of windy gripe, and since Jeremiah had put dinner to cook in the crock pot before leaving for work, I was free to enjoy the outdoors with the kids. We sat on the porch eating popsicles and Milo started picking lawn daisies.
“Can you show me how to do a flower necklace like Chloe?” I showed him how to gently split a stem and thread another one through the hole. He spent 30 minutes at least engrossed in the project, and was duly proud of the result.
He then went on to sew a flower necklace for Naomi, who had decided that matching her hat color to her dress was more important than keeping the sun off her face.
Oh, for more harmonious afternoons like this!
