"The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep."

It's ok, it's so nice!

This morning at 8:30, I was running through sprinklers in the backyard with my three favorite girls. What bliss! I love spring, really I do, but the constant hormonal weather changes get to me. When the thermometer reaches 80 degrees like it has been this week, and the skies are clear and I know that it won't be raining or hailing or just plain freezing cold five minutes from now, something inside me starts a happy dance that lasts all summer! 

Must shriek and run from the water!


There are no pictures of me, because a sprinkler soaked, 5 months pregnant lady doesn't make for a pretty picture. ;) Later, though, when we were all dry (fyi, blowing approximately 7,853 bubbles while your daughters race around in the sunshine to pop them all seems to dry out soggy sundresses effectively!), Ashley asked for a picture of all four of us, and we got a cute one:

I just trimmed Bethany's bangs two days ago and I PROMISE they are not actually jagged and uneven the way they look here! Honestly!
Afternoon popsicles on the front porch, chalk flowers and balloons drawn all over the driveway. Watering the flowers that we planted yesterday, and catching my little Hannah whispering words of encouragement to them..."Look at the sunshine, pretty flowers! It likes to see your faces, and it will help you grow!" Fresh pink toenail polish on little toes that wiggle a tiny bit even when they're trying so hard to hold still, and princesses in pajamas dancing with each other before bed. Beautiful moments, beautiful life!


"It's ok, it's so nice! Just another day in paradise
There's no place that I'd rather be!
It's two hearts, and one dream
I wouldn't trade it for anything
And I ask the Lord, every night,
for just another day in paradise!"
