Even in the mud and scum of things, something always, always sings.

bath-time conversations / hide-and-seek / making and loving these / visit from Nina + Papa / starting our school routine again / a family walk / sharing  / new light fixtures (photo by Tim) / help and laughter in the kitchen / each sharing the best+worst part of each day at dinner; clapping happens when someone says “no worst today” / inviting the messy table again / quiet time with a favorite read / new haircuts
