Day 28, Way 28


We slept on the trampoline last night.  It was so fun to sleep under the stars and I think it was the first time Brynlee realized how many stars actually fill the nighttime sky.  She asked question after question about the earth and the sun and the moon and the planets and she watched intently for a shooting star.  We never saw one, but she wasn’t defeated.  Next time.  We had glow sticks and a late night snack of fruit loops and string cheese.  Then Jace talked a million miles an hour without a breath.  When he finally paused for half a second {maybe less} he drifted to dreamland.  Middle of a conversation, even.  The kids slept the night in its entirety and by morning time we were all one heaping mess of sleeping bags and knotted bodies piled in the middle of trampoline.  Summertime at its finest if you ask me.
