The girls that JoAn babysits for came over to play in our leaf pile. It is the benefit and curse of having lots of big trees in the back yard. Fun to play in, but not so fun to rake up. Fortunately Mr. Boots bought a super duper high powered backpack blower. It has taken a lot of the pain out of cleaning up the yard.
I love the little girl giggles as they play. They are so precious. Elizabeth enjoyed the company. It is not nearly so much fun to jump alone.

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.
William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)
We are memorizing this sonnet for school this semester. Every time we recite it, it reminds me of I Cor. 13. It makes me appreciate being married to a godly man.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love you Sweetie!
