It rained here this weekend. All weekend. We nestled inside and had a lovely-relaxing-rainy-the-children-got-along-kind of weekend. Fridays sunshine made the weekend seem even more cosy and romantic.
We tucked in. Everyone slept just a little bit later. The children created a new game together and played it all weekend long. There were paper wallets made and houses constructed. Dress-up clothes worn and most of all they laughed. Contagious laughing. They didn't cry, bicker, or annoy each other. whoa.
The big daddy created the most delicious shredded chicken dish, yum. I had time to sew, in the middle of the day no less. I created and thought about plans for our girl who will be twelve at the end of the month.
The baby was happy to watch her siblings. She also started dancing. A back and forth up and down kind of movement when you sing or she hears music. There was lots of singing by her big brothers to get her to do it again and again and again...
After a busy time last week it was really nice to have time to relax. With four children this kind of calm doesn't come often and you have to be ready to enjoy it when it does. It felt like a real weekend and all of us soaked it up.
How was your weekend?
