We’ve cried over eggs so many times, feeling responsible for their failure to thrive. And then, this batch. It felt different.

Okay, we’re rolling on the outdoor time this week! We’ll make it to 20 soon, and I’m super excited. Grandparents visit began Wednesday, so we shoved responsibilities into the first three days of the week, and then took two days off. Yet the documentarian in me still writes!
