It was so beautiful outside with the sun reflecting off the branches and casting mystical shadows. Even the grass glinted with the sun. The breeze was cool and oh so perfect along with the light heat of the sun, and I couldn’t help but feel so at ease. There must have been at least 15 minutes of silence as the children played in the dirt, completely entranced. At the moment I’m giving them both a bath, because I refuse to breastfeed Emilie while her mouth still is caked with dirt, and both of the kids scalps have a layer of dirt along with their hands, arms and legs. I think they ate enough of the dirt to keep enough of the germs in their system to build up their germ immunity.6
Before we came inside for good, we stopped by the chicken to collect eggs. Emilie’s and George’s favorite activity is to feed them scratch. It’s so cute to see Emilie try to say, “hi chickens!” while George and Emilie grab fistfuls of scratch and attempt to get at least half of it in. George loves having the chickens peck his fingers as he sticks them through the chicken fence, and Emilie loves to try to attempt it too, though I’m glad she’s never succeeded to get pecked yet. Well, it was indeed a very fun outdoor day, and the kids had a lot of fun, as well as me while I watched them go crazy. :) Now time for bubble bath. Go bubbles, go!
