Missing

April 13, 2017

1. Looking over our backyard to see what work needs to be done. ‘Didn’t we have four dying pine trees here?’ I ask. We look for the missing one and see that it fell over the bank into the creek bed. The roots were so shallow, or so rotted, the earth was barely disturbed.

2. The new word today is ‘ant’. We get bothered by black ants during the non winter months, and I was especially annoyed with them at lunchtime. I got out the little vacuum and am afraid I kind of messed up Rachel’s lunch with the distraction. She was pretty excited about it all and kept shouting out ‘ain, ain’. 

3. Rachel was having a difficult time with bedtime ever since our trip a few weeks ago, but the last two nights, she turns out the light while being held, listens as one of us chats with her for a bit, then reaches for her crib to be put in it. Such peaceful bedtimes are nice.
