They hurried back home to make sure the boys didn't miss any more of VBS. This summer is going to be busy for them. A wedding for Ashley's sister and all of them in it except baby girl.
I've smiled over and over as I find a little horse that didn't make it to the toy box. All the tub toys lined up on the side of the tub. The raggedy dolls sitting on their little bench, placed just so by the children's mother. I caught my breath when I saw them. Sitting in different positions than I usually have them, but how attractive that little scene looked. Some people have a natural ability to place things just right.
