  • sing music with Matt
  • laundry, 3 loads
  • clean kitchen
  • do dishes
  • put houseplants outside in sun
  • make lunch for Matt and me
  • watch Pooh Bear Shapes dvd with Matt
  • put sheets back on bed

It's been a warm, sunny day full of small tasks but big moments. Sarah was wonderful in the play and is happy to be home early. Matt and I have chatted about many things; I can hear him as he laughs, playing in his room.
