Kids

Last week, while bombs were going off at the Boston Marathon, Livie, Tori, and I were taking the kids on a walk to see the cows.

It is always little disorientating to think about the things that are happening at any given moment while you are living life. The other worlds that are simultaneously existing on this earth, juxtaposed to our  own little world. 

 It was a gorgeous day where we were.

The girls, holding out a handfull of grass, trying to tempt the cows near them. The cows steered clear.

Tori trying to get the kids to stand in a line. They didn't.


 
Gilbert doesn't stay still for very long

 
Sweet monkey girls

Sanita wool clogs were not the best choice for footwear

Oh, those kids are too cute. Love the one of Elsie snuggling on your shoulder, and of Gilbert galloping wildly. Your picture's just exude peace and serenity, all the while chaos was brewing elsewhere. I think about that frequently, actually. Every given second of any day no matter what we are doing, somebody somewhere is experiencing the worst day of their life.
