Psalm 127:3-5

Behold children are a gift of the LORD,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a mighty warrior, so are the children of one's youth.
How blessed are those whose quiver is full of them
."

Afternoon down time





This is one of my favorite times of the day and we are finally back at because the weather is so gorgeous. We have an elementary school across the street from our house and so every afternoon when the kids are walking home from school and the parents are walking to meet them and there is a general buzz to the neighborhood, Anna and I (and Serene) go out to watch, say hello to neighbors and Anna plays in her sand box. I love just sitting, holding the baby while she sleeps and reading, watching Anna play and just relaxing! It's one of my most enjoyable times of the day. All the housework is done, dinner preparations are still a few hours away and peace reigns!
