I saw a quote yesterday on someone's blog to the affect of 'children spell love t-i-m-e,' so when I saw that mine were getting antsy today, I found some things in the closet that had belonged to dear Marie, or g.g., as they called her. (Great-grandma.) Because I know, summer can seem boring while you're in it, and so fleeting later. I taught them Chinese Checkers; I hate to tell you that I won but no one would listen to my strategy recommendations! Then they taught me Pirate Code. And then two looked through all the wonderful marbles while two of us had a nap.
