To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony.

Spring Cleaning

The weather starts to get warm and thoughts turn to outside fun. So being the good (lazy???) mom that I am I had the kids get a jump start on our spring cleaning. Work is is work is the Hadding least on some days.

Put some muscle in it...scrub...scrub...

Sam supervises and gives his approval.

At the end of the day even Claire was exhausted.
