On Saturday morning, everyone was up at about 6AM (maybe earlier). Waking up early helps us all enjoy the day anyway. I have known that Emilee wakes up early for a long time, and she knows I do too (sometimes we email each other first thing in the morning). It was raining outside, so after breakfast the children ran about the house and the adults all played Dutch Blitz.
The rain stopped and the sun started to come out a little. After we ate some lunch, we went for a walk to Emilee’s parents house which is nearby. We enjoyed playing with the goats and the children played in some sand. Eventually the children went for a little swim (not so much my boys because the pool was a bit too cold for them). It was relaxing and enjoyable and we wished the moments wouldn’t end. I cooked some dinner for our families (planned ahead of time, so I brought the ingredients and Emilee provided the meat). Sometime after dinner settled we had some s’mores together by the fire, put the children to bed, and had some popcorn while playing more Dutch Blitz and chatting with each other all day long. It was very fun.
Leto gave Josephine a dandelion. I don’t know what she was thinking, but it was still cute. Micah loved giving some grass to their rabbit. Emilee and I were pregnant together for each of our first children (her girls are each just a couple to a few months older than my boys).
