Today we don't even need jackets. Or jumpers or long-sleeves. We spent an hour collecting sea glass in t-shirts and tank tops, and Katharina went shoeless. There's nothing like sand all over tiny toes.

We took the long route home and had vegetables and risotto on the patio for lunch. The hot sunshine kept us outside past nap time, but now every little is sleeping, the doors and windows of the house are wide opened and I may or may not have eaten half a piece of rhubarb pie. With a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

The littles and I were on South Street one day last week when a kind gentlemen counted my children once, then once again, and enthusiastically said to me, "What a lucky lady!" 

Yes. What a lucky lady.

These children have significantly improved my day; I'm so thankful for each and every one of them.

not quite a picnic, but fun nonetheless.
