It's Been a Week, Alright...

 Marion's not too sure about all this.

 Sean loves puttering around in the yard.


Hauling lumber for a project (a ramp for his cars).

 "Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood." -Fred Rogers

Whew, it's definitely been a week. And I don't mean that like "it's been so busy and we've had so much exciting stuff going on." I mean, it's been one of those weeks where everybody just cries so much that Mama questions her sanity, and also wonders how the heck to get a meal on the table when every single minute all she can think of is curling up to sleep a long sleep.

Yeah. that kind of week.

But the good Lord gave us sunshine today, and when we were all feeling mean and cranky with each other, I finally decided to throw a blanket on the grass and get ourselves outside.
Forty minutes later, an entirely different group of happy individuals returned indoors for lunch and continued work. Sun and playtime are just good medicine.
