This little scene unfolded early this evening. I was making dinner and sort of loitering in the kitchen. I glanced out the sliding glass door to see this: Dee is on the swing, tongue out, blue shower cap on her head. TJ is catching the handle of a jump rope, midair. Ty is running around on the left, probably with the other end of the jump rope in his hand. There are socks on the lawn. There is a bean bag in the back, on top of a dog poop.
It’s pretty much a hot mess but it’s awesome too. I’m so glad our kids get the opportunity to just be kids like this on a regular basis. They are loud and chaotic and a lot of times I lose my patience with them, but I love watching the silliness. Especially when it’s in the backyard. Kids are fun. God bless them.
