After our lovely, first-time ever traveling without our children weekend, I was anxious to get back to our garden. I was worried what it might look like after no human presence in it for several days. What I found was a basket of happy:
We all munched on peas, beans, raspberries, and a carrot last night and have lettuce all washed and waiting for us in the fridge. I couldn’t have been more relieved and happy, except when we picked up the kids first and L3 met us at the door with full-body hugs. He’d been watching the road for us eagerly. The moment of reunion with him was sweet. L4 was happy to see us, but she doesn’t feel the passage of time in the same way as her big brother. I wonder if she even realized that days had passed since last we’d seen each other?
We have a to-do list a mile long for today after being gone all weekend and now that L1’s summer vacation has begun. I’ll have a break in all the list-crossing-offness to gaze at some picture from our trip and relish some of those moments in my memory.
