"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."

Things Kids Say

We watched a bit of a special on PBS about the Circus. Flora very seriously informed us that she wants to be in the Circus either as "on of those funny men who paint on their faces" or "on of the pretty girls that get to fly" . She was a little confused when Mamma and Daddy started laughing. Total Fit!
 I was sitting on our bed doing stuffed animal surgery on a teddy bear and Andrew comes running into the room carrying/dragging two large trucks and yelling "wait up momma, wait up!" I did know what was more funny, him trying to "catch up" with his trucks or his since of urgency.

Clara is a smart cookie. We were driving into town yesterday and her sister said something about the gray clouds in the sky. Clara then gave her a very long lecture on what kind of cloud they were. To summarize they were rain clouds, not thunder and actually (tilt of the head hear) they were very far away, and we could not get any rain for a while. She was right, no rain for a couple of hours. Then when it started raining she was disappointed, even though there was no chance of playing out side.

After out long day in town yesterday, I jumped in the tub while the kids where finishing their dinner. Every few seconds on of them would run in and make sure I was "having a nice bath".

Just a couple of things that have made me smile this last few days!
