Friday afternoon…Daddy-man sharing lunch with his little flock as he works from home…Wee Chicks running in and out happily bringing forth first fruits from their gardens (carrots, strawberries, baby lettuce)…Baby Tink clapping gleefully as she watches Mother Hen and Big Sis filled with aroma of homemade chocolate chip cookies (with pecans) fresh out of the oven…large glasses of ice cold milk…four smiling bambinos sitting around the kitchen table, chocolate specks and milk mustaches appearing on their faces…cookie filled mouths asking if we can we keep reading “Much Ado About Nothing”? in anticipation of this evenings’ performance by a local homeschool theater group…more cookies coming out of the oven…Ah! This is the Sweet Life!
