A Few More Bookworm Shots..

These pictures are not even staged. She loves to climb into her chair and flip through books - it is the sweetest thing.

Book Worms

I love books and it brings me immense joy to see that my children love them too. Even the littlest stinker is beginning to open books and look at the pictures. Sometimes she won't even rip any pages out...And most of the time she sits still when we read to her. This is one genetic trait I am thrilled to pass on!

(Sorry about the poor picture quality; it is shot with an ipod - I just had to share!!)

To the Land of the Rising Sun - With Love.

Yesterday I was driving down a calm street in our town, headed out to do a few errands. The sun was shining (finally!), I had great music on the radio and my husband had even taken the kids so I could do some stress-free shopping and returns. It was all so commonplace and normal and it made it hard to believe that on the other side of the world, people are reeling from the aftermath of such a massive natural disaster. I cannot comprehend the suffering. I cannot comprehend losing your loved ones, or having your home - your entire city - ripped apart by earthquakes and then a tsunami. Oh, and as the icing on the cake, now a looming nuclear disaster. I am not sure how to put such an event into words, even.
All I can say is that my heart and prayers go out to our brothers and sisters in Japan...May the sun shine on you again soon!

Today is turning out to be one of those teeth grinding, jaw clenching days, so to get my mind off things, here is a picture from a day when my children did not cry much of the day, lie to me about peeing on the floor, or clog the downstairs toilet so my back hallway was swimming in toilet water...
