is there anything better…

Then finishing your schoolwork and chores early so you can get outdoors?
playing with your brothers on a crisp autumn afternoon, jumping into leaves…
working up a good appetite for a thick slice of Grandma’s oatmeal cake…
and then, oh boy! Mom says “Load up, because we’re off to the Library”
where you find that longed-for-last-book in the series?
clutching it all the way home in anticipation…
snagging the comfiest chair…
stretched out, turning pages slowly…
with a warm, lazy cat to stretch out across your cold feet?

Nothing better, for Sam.

About sparrowjourney

Christian homeschooling mom to three boys, married to my best friend, John, for over 20 years. I love gardening without gloves, learning history with my kids, cooking with lots of butter, serving others, great books, rich coffee, studying the Bible, camping outdoors, scrapbooking, vintage home decor, the smell of rain and cut grass, authentic people, poetry, laughing until your sides hurt, and babies. oh and black licorice is pretty awesome.
