Outside fun

This morning Grandpa came over to help us work on our lawn. Keith is still recovering from surgery and is unable to mow the grass. Grandpa brought us over some yummy bear claws from Panera Bread and I made some Chai lattes. After a nice breakfast, Grandpa went to work on the lawn and I went to work following up with the medical officers at the Coast Guard base. Keith rested on the couch and Daniel kept him company. On Fridays, the kids get out of school at 12:30 pm. We played outside from the time they got home until it was time for me to go inside to make dinner. Joshua practiced shooting hoops.
Daniel worked on his batting skills.
Megan explored the yard, looking for things to inspect under the magnifying glass.
She inspected the grass, a few acorns and some leaves.
I love those chubby little hands.

Every time Megan would find something interesting to look at, she'd call over to the boys for them to check it out, too.
