Today the boys' school observed President's Day.
The boys were all home . . .
We took the day kind of slow,
until I thought it just might be warm enough for them to play outside.
So, out we went . . .
I was wrong . . .
it was cold . . .
I was froze . . .
we came inside.
Down to the basement to play air hockey - four player.
I was snuggled in a blanket.
Everything started out o.k.
Then the arguing with one another began . . .
After a few warnings,
air hockey was cancelled.
Four boys headed upstairs . . .
I was right behind them.
Nap time . . .
sleeping bags and pillows . . .
blanket and puppy for me.
Snuggled all together in our master bedroom's sitting room.
Quiet and naps on a chilly February afternoon.
Everyone was better for it . . .
and woke TWO HOURS later . . .
(the boys slept - I simply rested.)
It was a beautiful thing!
