Time to revel in the glory of God’s creation.
And then thee was the unexpected iris blooming in the wild edges of the yard.
Not one of the ones we transplanted from my parent’s garden in Texas. They won’t bloom this year.
No, this sprang up unexpectedly in the corner of the yard near where the daffodils and tulips bloom, the remnants of what must once have been a deliberate bed.
A flash of purple among the tall grass that caught my eye from across the yard.
Isn’t it exquisite?
And then there’s Anthony. Wide-eyed.
Bella said, “Take a picture of me and Anthony,” and then hopped up next to him on the bed.
I had time to click the shutter twice and then she was gone. Running off to the backyard to play with Sophie and Ben.
But Anthony posed for a few more shots.
He’s got nowhere to go. Nothing to do but smile. And eat and sleep.
Except maybe to hang out with Daddy.
“Whatcha laughing at, Daddy?”
Isn’t he the cutest thing in those overalls? And can you believe he’s wearing size 6-9 month clothes already?
