The Sounds of Silence? (Hardly . . . )

Sunday has been a fairly nice day so far.

There was a baptism at church this morning. Babies are so cute when they are baptised. Boys and girls alike always wear those long, white baptismal gown things. The girls sometimes accessorize with a bonnet. The little girl being baptized today has faint red hair and is very cute. She didn't cry a bit when the water was poured over her forehead. There was a good crowd in church and everyone seemed to be in a good, happy mood. Seeing little babies does that to people.

We had considered going to the Ohio Renaissance Festival today, after church, with some friends, but they were exhausted from lots of activity yesterday. So instead we took the girls to the zoo for several hours. The weather was gorgeous and we all had a good time.

When we got home Tegan started working on supper while I did a bit of work and we tried to keep the kids occupied. This always leads to the inevitable MINE . . . No, MINE! stuff. It gets nervewracking and MIGHT be the best reason never to have more than one child. But they will eventually grow up to be old enough to hate each other and stop talking to one another and then also you.

Dinner was great and maybe the relaxing part of the evening is approaching.

We'll see. . . .
