It is an absolutely beautiful day here in Manhattan! This week is City Uprising so the girls kept the kids for me to go down to SALT for the worship gathering this morning. Afterwards I ran one quick errand, then went to Subway, got lunch (it was only 10:30, but I was alone and could, so I did!) and at there in the store and ate alone, in peace, finished a meal in one setting with out any interruptions! A very nice way to start the day. Lydia and Mary are doing great. They've been a lot of help and a lot of fun already. We'll do a special post about that later.
When I got home I helped get the kids lunch and then I took them to the park. Today was Lillie and Elliott's first day to get to play instead of staying in the stroller. I think they liked it. And dirty does not begin to describe their hands and the knees of their pants when we left.
There were school kids playing in the "field" next to the play ground. Elliott was mesmerized by them.
Lillie and Elliott both loved sliding down the slide.
And Jack is already teaching them the wrong way to go up the slide.
