Every once in a while Alice falls asleep during her quiet time and she gets to stay up late. The other night was one of those nights and Brad suggested that they watch a movie outside. Alice was thrilled. They rounded up her sleeping bag, the portable DVD player, and Brad's book, then headed for the back yard. When I checked on them, they were both perfectly content.
After the movie we all caught fireflies. It was a perfect ending to a perfect evening.
Tonight after dinner the kids did some finger-painting. Oh what a mess, but oh what fun!
