when it's too quiet

for Elizabeth, Carter and Logan:

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
Your hands can reach when I am out of sight...

It was much too quiet on this day. I was busy packing for our family trip to Pappa & Grandma's house and the boys were playing downstairs. indeed they were. Carter and I had planted seeds weeks earlier that were to be transplanted to the garden later that day. Instead the little yogurt cups were capsized and Thomas the Tank Engine trudged through through the delightful dirt. Did I mention we'll be filling the sandbox later this week?
