Andy was in charge of after school today. He got Hank home from the pediatrician in time to receive the big boys home from school. They rode bikes in the street for awhile, and were bathed and showered by the time I got back. I walked into the house to four happy boys and dinner warm.
There's something about twinkling lights and sibling harmony, about dogged cheerfulness hitching a ride with the velvety smells of sautéed garlic and butter, that reminds me (even as the boys make lists) : We have everything we need.
