It's the little moments.

Right now, John and Ellie are sitting in the kitchen floor together...shelling purple hull peas from John's garden. It has utterly amazed us at Ellie's skill and desire in this arena. She loves to sit and shell the peas, and she does such a great job with it. She puts the peas in one bowl and the compost in the compost bin. It is with great effort that she opens them, sorts them, and finishes the task.

I wish I had my camera in hand because there is much giggling and laughter coming from the kitchen. The conversation is light and funny. There is afternoon sunlight spilling through the window, and Ellie's blond hair is glistening. It's in the little moments that I remember I love them so very much.
