I am knee-deep in a warm, pond-fed creek on a humid July eve. The girls have transformed into mermaids and Jeffrey is dipping Wallace into the water. Our baby boy is skinny dipping for the first time!
Jeffrey finds the perfect sandy, shallow spot for Wallace to sit. Wallace is delighted to be so independent, and the girls are enchanted with their cherub of a brother. His delight is their delight. Their delight is my delight. Watching them all together makes my heart sing.
