Look at me.

What do you notice about this photo? The camera doesn't quite capture the triumphant gleam in my eye, but ... LONG SLEEVES! Forgive me for obsessing about the weather, but fall comes so slowly to these parts, and I haven't worn a long-sleeved shirt since ... well, since our trip to Boston a couple weeks ago. Before that it was ... well, I'm thinking Bill Clinton may have been president the last time our elbows received coverage. But TODAY -- oh, the glory! -- after the much-needed rain of yesterday, we had a high of about 74 degrees. It was a day to sit out in the yard on a blanket, reading aloud and making butter in baby food jars.

No, seriously. We really did.

Look at him.

This is my little man coaching his sister on how to coast on her scooter. This is SO going on his "Good Deeds of the Week" list. (Meltdowns, noted at his suggestion with an "X," go on the other side of the paper. This week he met his goal of more-than-four Smiley Faces and fewer-than-four X's). Progress is, well, progress.

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!
