"I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

Discussion had with Miss Flora while she was cutting a pile of little pieces out of a scrap piece of paper.

Flora: "Mama?" "Does this look like a door?" (holding up a tiny little newly cut item that kinda looked like a door with some imagination)
Mama: "Why, yes it does! Good job!" 

Flora (with a very important look on her face): "Yes, I am good at cutting doors" (pause) "I am going to cut a lot of them!" (giggle)

Mama: "Sounds like a good idea!" (chuckle)

Clara: "Daddy?" "What do thunder clouds looks like" (She is always asking the how, when, why questions for everything. I love hearing her learn and ask questions, we looked them up on the computer) 
Clara: "I love playing my violin. Someday, maybe tomorrow, it will sound pretty!" (We are still in the rather squeaky stage, but getting better!)

Flora: " My eyes are blinking on and off!" (said while blinking very fast)

Andrew: "Me. WEE WOO WEE WOO" (said when ever get gets even the littlest ouchy)
Right now the girls are cutting snow flakes out of paper. It's June 24th. I know we have had a wet and cool spring....but snow flakes! :) 

Tuesday we spent some time down at the pasture (about 4 blocks away across the railroad tracks or a bit bit farther by the road) trimming up the lower branches of a stickery tree. They do not bug the horses, but the lady who owns it also has lamas and they get stuck in the softer feet and get infected. We are trying to be as helpful as we can! She has been so sweet and kind and helpful!
She has a gelding named Charlie Horse. He is a fun horse with a lot of personality. While Aaron was done with his  chain saw and set it aside. Charlie, wondering what it was, came over to sniff it. He started to nibble on the pull handle. Then stuck his foot on the rear of the chain saw. I so wish I had the camera! It looked like he was trying to start it! It was so funny!
