fall nights out back

i don't think there's anything better than watching my kids play together.
it makes all of the exhaustion worth it.
at least until they start fighting.
then it's not fun.
and i'm tired again.
but these are the moments i treasure.
the ones that make me smile.
and content.
with the leaves changing colors.
and the crisp air coming through the windows.
i'm going to miss these nights when the snow comes.
wait a minute,
someone's crying.

I love those moments! And they are always ruined by someone going to far. In my house, Faye bullies Keith. Sigh. Hopefully your kids play better than mine. And Fall air is scrumptious!

Oh well, you had a few moments peace!


PS. They are really growing up fast, aren't they?

:) It warms my heart to see my kids get along too. It's rarer as teens..

Yes, those moments make it all worth it
