    I didn't get a picture and I SO wish I had now...grrr...but its a good image in my head.

    Sunday was REALLY nice. Hit 75 here, actually. Sun shining, warm wind blowing, just wonderful. difficult child spent the entire day outside (suprise - NOT).

    easy child 1 has 4 beagle puppies. I was working on the car and difficult child asked to get them out. He did, and brought out a blanket which he spread out on the ground. Then he sat down with 4 bouncing, growling, barking, tugging little beagles jumping and licking all over him. He sat on that blanket for an hour with those pups, giggling, petting, tugging, retrieving wanderers and bringing them back...

    Was just one of those rare moments when it seemed not only all was well with difficult child, but all was well with the world, you know what I mean? I wish I had a picture, but the one in my head will do.
