twisted up



Left foot on blue.
Right hand yellow.
Under.
Over.

A warm sunny day brings the neighborhood kids out like worms in a rainstorm. Spread out the plastic blanket with the dots. S t r e t c h. Put a little blond boy up in the locust tree to spin the dial and call out moves and then bend and laugh and call Mom to come and take pictures and laugh some more.

It is what we live for as mothers. The Huck Finn-life of walking along the creek and climbing trees. Today this mom is filled up to the brim.

Summers as a kid are some of the greatest memories of my life.

I'm jealous. I want to play twister.

This is exactly what we live for. And what too often I overlook in the busy-ness of daily life. :)

I miss having kids home for summer. So fun to watch them have fun! Great pictures with the rich colors of the twister game, kids clothes and the green grass!

Love summer!
