I love this photo right now. Why? Because it was taken on Sunday afternoon... during a quiet moment (parents may know what I'm talking about even if they have to work at it), when I realized my children were both otherwise engaged. The house was quiet. The boy was reading a book, engrossed on the couch. The girl was out back, piling rock after rock into these containers. "To build rock castles, Mama," she said. Ah I miss that oasis of quiet but I'm trying to remember it tucked between the moments of frustration, squabbling and noise.
