Seth observes, "Mom! We could do everything in the new house that we do in the old house. Like, make oatmeal, sleep...."
It's true, we're getting closer. Three more days of "home limbo" where we sleep at one place and eat at the other. Just a bit more painting (like three rooms) and scrubbing and we'll be move-in ready.
Today, though, none of that. Just spending the afternoon at the house. Arranging tracks in the living room, toddling circles through unfamiliar doorways, placing teacups on display, and riding our scooters down the "swoop" from basement to garage--these were the tasks at hand. A day of rest--debatable. A day of new discoveries--indubitable:
The girls next door
their swing set offered to our littles
First firefly caught
Kitchen window-framed sunset
Rice Krispies for dinner on a cardboard box table
