And this is why:
Last night we pulled out Caleb's pool and slide, and let him go a little crazy. This boy would have stayed out there all night if we hadn't brought his shivering, blue-lipped body inside.
I finished a wonderful little book called Gift From the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh this afternoon. It is rich with insight and wisdom into daily life and relationships. I checked this copy out of the library, but must add it to my personal library; there are quite a few passages that deserve highlighting.
My library, by the way, is nearly complete! One entire wall is bookcases now, and I only have a few more boxes to take care of before my happy place is officially finished. Excitement!
