Despite a lot of shared family sadness, a lot of the perfunctory craziness of moving, we have been overjoyed with our new house. We love the house itself, with magical nooks and quirks, but the yard...the yard the yard the yard. Today has been the first day spent inside (due to a frustrating, sleeping-depriving, Millie-crying-till-3-AM illness!). Even spending everyday outside the girls still haven't explored every part of the yard. Its been wonderful to open the doors and let 'em loose. Millie especially adores her mudpie kitchen. There have even been a couple of times in the past week when I could sit with Hazel in my lap, and read. Read a book. Summer outdoor reading is happiness for me!
