We've had a busy few weeks of summer, with a week long zoo camp and a week long Vacation Bible School (which Alex participated in and I taught). This third week of summer is unscheduled. This doesn't mean we're not busy, but we definitely have the opportunity to consciously SLOW DOWN.
So Justin and I pulled out all of our beloved wooden bowls and utensils today and polished them while Sister played outside with her neighbor friend. They look so inviting when they're cared for, and the rhythm of washing our dishes after breakfast is a beautiful and comforting way to start our day.
