Dinner was ready and we were waiting for daddy to come home from work. (He did a grocery run for bread on his way home.) The kids got out the colored pencils and the Dover coloring books and started to color. We're studying caniforms and feliforms in science and these coloring books make you feel so official. I thought it was a great idea...so I pulled out my knitting. It's those little moments of just being together (and wanting to be together) that make me smile.
The fact that they were all occupied and relatively quiet was a bonus too!
