It's our evening routine of enjoying the setting sun. The air gets cooler and the sky starts changing colors. The day is winding down but before bedtime all three of my girls get in an extra forty minutes of playtime outside. Each and every one of them is completely filthy from chalk drawings, mud pies, running around barefoot and playing with Lucy and the cats.
It's my favorite time of the day. I love watching the last bit of their energy expended in chasing each other and laughing. When the sunlight fades along with their sunshiny dispositions; we all stomp up the stairs to jump in the bath and wash the grime away.
