my favorite moment today

~ lying on my back on the trampoline with Rosebud right next to me at dusk. the static electricity made her hair stick up, and her arm went into my hair and sometimes she pulled it. we looked up at the shockingly blue sky (never blue here in AR except after huge storms followed by cold fronts). white clouds scudding across. branches and leaf crowds in trees being pushed around by the strong sudden winds. birds soaring way higher than I realized birds can soar. I looked over at Rose and she had her two fingers in her mouth (in pianospeak: it's always her RH 3 and 4 :). Exacto came out then, and lay on the other side of Rose and told me that the sky was a huge river and the clouds were boats and we were glued to the bottom of a bridge staring down. next came Fluffy and his eyes looked like the sky and his hair was sculptured from wearing his bike helmet for almost three hours, and he kept threatening to bounce us. it got cold and Rose and I came in.

Lovely moment. I remember your oldest sucking on his two middle fingers when he was a baby in Tallahassee. It was so adorable. Thank you for sharing. :)
