Our little slice...

...of Americana, the pie, whatever you want to call it, to me it felt like Heaven.

This was last night. That's grandpa on the pitching machine and John up to bat. Grandma was on the riding mower (a favorite passtime), Kevin was on the tractor (a least favorite passtime), Allie was blowing bubbles....

...and Lauren was trying to pop them.

I sat on the porch, pricing my things for Jackie, so happy to have the chance to stop rushing and just sit awhile. The air was cool and sweet-smelling, the kids were happy and free and the unspoken consensus seemed to be peace and calm. I even passed up a knitting get-together with the girls just so my head would stop spinning. And I'm sorry girls, but as much as I love you, it was worth it.
