Today, my children and I touched the first autumn rainfall. Today I meandered through tasks with my children. We played at the park as long as we wanted. We chose a special new back-to-school purchase for our first ever day in public school. We ate delicious cookies as a prize for our library's reading program. We brought home a loaf of cinnamon roll bread for Papa. We had a leisurely breakfast, lunch, and dinner, all of us at the table together. My partner tackled lots of dishes and some laundry. He didn't cough so much today. I had a shower. We sold something on craigslist.com. We gifted yard toys to a neighbor. We ate lots of fruit.
My children were helpful with grocery shopping. I took a long ol' time to type out much of my children's imaginative stories and listened to them read them back to each other. We finished reading The Green Ember aloud together and are moving onto other awesome tales. I finished working on photo books of our recent family reunion. We chose just the right photo for our computer screen from the reunion.
My son played lots of board games with his daddy. We laughed when our baby girl's cloth diaper fell off. She got a couple long naps and went to bed tonight when she was ready. She has now let go of me long enough for me to rise and write. My older daughter read through another five novels today and is reading another in bed as I type. Our family had time together to watch the rain, relax, love, and smile. I give the greatest of thanks for these extraordinary details within this blessed day in a life of miracles. Aho!
