Lately

Lately, I have been saying yes to extra chapters at bedtime. The Bailey School Kids, Magic Tree House, and the Littles have been filling our evenings. And even though Little Man has been going to bed a little late, he's usually happy about it.

Lately, I've been teaching five year olds how to play soccer. Even though I feel like they're going to eat me alive at times, I'm so proud when one of them scores a goal or shows what a good sport they are.

Lately, I've been allowing play dates on Monday afternoons. Play dates filled with balloon games, bowls of strawberries, and lots of giggles.
(The joys of static)

Lately, I've been focused on happiness. When I think about it, there are so many more smiles and laughs then I've ever noticed before.

There really is a lot to be happy about isn't there? Especially when you take a moment and enjoy it.

I like the lyrical use of the word "Lately" in your post. And I'm sure the soccer games will Be forever treasured
