Yohannes turned one of our garden boxes into a sandbox this year. Best 700 lbs of sand he ever lugged into the back yard. Nati is in heaven.
Lily spent the morning hanging out on the quilt.
Things I like about the back yard include food and flowers, though I apparently know nothing about flowers.
Things I don’t like about the back yard include wasps, mosquitoes, and the spider that crawled across my sleeping baby’s head. Also, we have a lot of glass and trash that has been worked into the soil in the past.
In other news, Lily sucked her thumb for the first time. Should I be glad that she’s self-soothing, or nip the habit in the bud? I sucked my thumb as a baby…and toddler…and elementary aged child…so I see how it could become a problem.
