too often i feel like we fall into the drudgery of habit. so today i shook things up a bit and picked marls up from school with balloons, flowers, and a picnic. we didn't go far. but we did have fun. marls spent most of the time running around as fast as she could, which is pretty darn fast by the way, and doodle twirled. we started with five balloons, but it was pretty windy, so by the time we left there was just one and it was loosing air quickly.
