Sun Kissed

My kids have been outside playing for the last hour and a half – ever since we got home from church. Earlier this week I had to lock the doors to keep them outside, and now that they should be napping, I can’t bear to drag them in.

I have, in general, lacked this balance in parenting, this bending of the rules for the sake of a rare sunny day in Seattle. But today I relent my need to control a schedule, and I let them play until they decide to stop.
