It is hot; right now the temperature in our house is 88 degrees. We are not acclimated to this level of heat. It makes us cranky. (Sadly, I am not immune to this effect.)
We were at home this afternoon. C&D were arguing about everything. So I stopped dinner preparations and we all went outside together to build a "backyard waterpark," consisting of one slide and one sprinkler.
It was perfect.
Suddenly the children were happy, screaming with delight. C exclaimed, "It's more of everything, every second! More laughter, more fun-ness, and even more wetness!"
I spread out a quilt and laid down on my back, the spray of the sprinkler soaking my face and pitter-pattering like rain around me.
Yes. That's more like it.
