May 20, 2010 This is how it should be, this is how it is....


This is how it should be, this is how it is.....

Today was one of those days you wish you could capture with a camera. But a camera just can't capture perfection.
It started with a gorgeous blue sky, a warm but not hot day. And continued with a story read on the couch, sandwiched between two of the best listeners ever. Nothing like a good snuggle to start your day right. Then it continued - a two hour art lesson in the kitchen with a friend, then out to catch crawdads in the stream - 11 of them! Then a hurried panicked search for one that was dropped in the grass, and a sigh of relief when he was safely returned to the stream.
Next we scrounged about for lunch - leftovers and gifts from the garden, along with a few just picked strawberries from the backyard. Then off to a park with more friends, a hike through the woods after playing in a giant sandbox. And the prize at the end of the hike? Our own private "island" with sand and waves - good friends and fun! Then back home for dinner and one more story about a little canoe making its way to the sea. And finally, out into the yard in boots and pj's to capture the nighttime fairy lights in a jar. Then sitting on the porch, letting the little lights crawl up our fingers and drift off into the night ... one by one by one...
How can you possibly top that day?
