The older boys had a really good time at their sleep-over and came home with a little basket filled with fresh figs right off the tree. They were bubbling about all that they had seen and experienced, and one of the things they were most excited about was the fruit trees and berry bushes, and being able to go out in the morning and pick fresh fruit for breakfast. It made me wish that we could give them that life: live in a house that has a big yard with lots of fruits, berries and vegetables, trees with swings and a large lawn for sports and proximity to nature, mountains, lakes and rivers. One day.
In the meantime, I am very happy with what we have here: a nice apartment and the sea just across the street. Isn’t it beautiful? (See photo in prior post.)
