A Long Day

Hugo's bedtime prayer went a little like this:

Dear Heavenly Father,
Please bless the food.
And please bless the squitos so they wont bite me and drink my blood.
In the name (I butted in at this point with a gentle reminder, "Please bless Papa...")
Hugo- Mom.  I am too tired.
In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Sounds of Home

The girls were playing happily with Carly in the sandbox when my Dad began to mow the lawn.  Marlo jumped up looking toward the sound she knew so well, and began waving and waving as she called out, "Papa, Papa, Papa!"  Both girls were surprised and bewildered to see my Father ride past them on the mower.  Sounds of home.

My sister Millie is giving me mini lessons on using my new camera, today I shot in "m".  It was exciting!  And hard.
