Yesterday we finally had the kind of day we should have had when the kids were on Spring break. Oh well. Better late than never.
It was such a pleasure to get out and work in the garden, after church. And the kids rode their bikes and then went fishing. After lunch they helped in the yard by cleaning off the little white picket fences that go around our "secret garden." And then they read.
They put the cushions on the lawn chairs and curled up and read their books. Pippi was getting ahead on a school assignment and Harry was reading "Wizard's Hall" by Jane Yolen (which he loves by the way and would recommend to any Harry Potter reader.)
After dinner Pippi and Harry ran around the back yard while my husband and I enjoyed a cup of tea on the deck.
What did we do yesterday? Not much when it comes right down to it - and that's what made the day so wonderful.
