Today's Agenda Brought to you by Macy and Grace Wilson
Grace just enthusiastically declared today the best day ever. And Macy wholeheartedly agreed. This makes me happy for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that today really wasn't that "spectacular" by most standards. We didn't even leave our house. But it was indeed a fabulous day.
We flew a kite, planted flowers, redecorated Webkinz houses, did art projects for Father's Day, painted nails, snuggled in the hammock, read our books, tended our veggie garden, played the piano, cooked and baked and just generally played together. It was awesome. And then we happily enjoyed slow-cooked brisket, braised red cabbage, rosemary bread with balsamic dipping sauce and cherry almond chocolate clusters. YUM! The fruit of our earlier work. :-D Now we are watching a movie together.
Sweet and uncomplicated, and I love everything about it. Don't get me wrong. I'm certainly not opposed to exquisite adventures sometimes too. I love Disneyworld and visiting New England castles as much as anyone. But since those things don't happen every day (or even every year necessarily), it's special to see my kids finding joy in the simple days. Awesome.
