Good Morning. A quiet Sunday was had by all here. Barry left in the early dawn light and the kids and I found ourselves digging thru the many piles of schooner gear here in the house. After a few more chores and a few more, ‚ÄúAhh, Mom, do we have too?‚Äù the day warmed up to a high 60 degrees! It‚Äôs amazing to think that it‚Äôs late October! If Autumn is a second spring and every leaf is a flower , then we are in full bloom here in Maine! The leaves are coming down faster than we can rake. Sawyer and Nadie gave it they‚Äôre all yesterday. A little nudge from the chocolate fairy who hid chocolate pumpkins in the pile gave a surprise ending to a day‚Äôs work. (Now all the leaves are scattered on the lawn again‚Ä¶.oh well, we don‚Äôt want Daddy to miss all the fun of raking!).
And as Rachel Carson once said, ‚ÄúIf a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in.‚Äù It‚Äôs a good thing I was there or they would never have found that last chocolate pumpkin! (of course it‚Äôs the one Sawyer stepped on and wouldn‚Äôt eat!) Have a great day. Be well. Do good. PS. If anyone has seen the tooth fairy, send her this way again.
