The Wiggliness of Worms

 Today I just let August go at it in the sand.

 I was hoping he'd taste it, realize it was gross, and then never eat it again.

But he went back for seconds.

 And fourthsfifthssixthsseventhseighthsandninths.

He'll lick his sandy lips, yet spits out his green beans.

While he was dining Sally made a village.

And Drew gave me some early Mother's Day wishes.

I love Mother's Day.

We ended with more sissy tests courtesy of Justin.

 He keeps forgetting we don't have insurance.

*Post title from this quote by Marjorie Pay Hinckley:
"Find joy in your children. Don't over-schedule them or yourself. You may not be able to take them on exotic vacations. It doesn't matter. When the day dawns bright and sunny, take an excursion to the canyon or the park. When it's cloudy and wet, read a book together or make something good to eat. Give them time to explore and learn about the feel of grass and the wiggliness of worms."

Thanks so much for sharing that quote! I needed to read/hear it and am so glad you shared it. I need to gain a lot more wisdom from the quotes of the wives of prophets! Your kids are sooooo sweet ... it looks like you had such a fun weekend !
