Last Friday Eleanor and I spent hours in the front yard, clearing old mulch from the flower beds, trimming back shrubs, and putting down new mulch. She was bored with the wagon, so I pulled down the sled. Poor kid got this sled from Nonnie for her first Christmas and it hasn't snowed for us to ever use it. Know what? It pulls pretty well through the grass and Eleanor thought it was awesome. When Drew pulled up and saw me pulling her through the front yard, I thought he was going to drive off the road laughing. (Also, I got the front beds done and they look so nice and fresh. I'm awesome. Also, I forgot to wear sunscreen and got my first decent sunburn of the year. Oops.)
Y'all, she's jumping now. Since she's realized she can actually get off the ground, she just bounces everywhere. I'm biased, but I think it's the cutest thing she's done to date. If you aren't sitting at a computer so that you can watch this video, you should be.
When I walked into the house the other day I had a moment. You know, a "moment". The kind of moment when you realize that life is pretty cool and you don't want to forget it. So I stopped and took a picture of my messy, wonderful, awesome house. I get to live here and that's pretty cool. God is good.
