Beautiful Girls

We went to the park this morning before it got too hot and I took some pictures you can check them out here. Piper had fun on the swings and the jungle gym, it amazes me how each time we go to the park she seems to be able to do more and more, climb higher and higher, swing faster and faster.

Finn is still a little small for anything except the baby swing which she does not really enjoy so she hangs out in the stroller in the shade with some toys.

I love taking them to the park and seeing them thinking about things, figuring them out, running around, learning how to move their bodies and manipulate their space. Piper is jumping all the time now and dances whenever the idea of music is in the air. Finley just this morning started to dance as I sang the "clean-up" song of all things. She was swaying back and forth in her highchair and smiling and squealing. These are times that I want to remember and think about and savor. There are always the "big" moments in our life but is the ordinary times that define us and mold us into who we are.

On a different note, I have started a new system to get this house under control and I really like it; it has already started to make a difference. My sink is shiny!

Ok, first off all, Flylady is awesome. It worked for me for a long time. The clean sink really makes a huge difference.

On the other hand, your kids are so freakin' cute.

I am going to NC with Jagger on Sat. for a family semi-emergency. I should be back in a week though. I really, really want to see you. So, let's e-mail until I get back. It will be like we are seeing each other without really seeing each other. :-)
