Monday night the whole family pitched in to prepare our house for guests. None of the kids wanted to clean (neither did Jon and I), but they all did anyway. Mo and Maggie actually helped clean Maggie's room together. I felt like the sky had fallen and it was the end of days. They were nice to each other all evening, even sitting together to read and listen to music.

I wish it was like this all the time.

At the end of the day Kyle sat next to me on the couch and just leaned his head on my shoulder- a sure sign I was hallucinating. But alas, I was not, and I didn't dare speak -- I didn't want to scare him off. Days like this make me ridiculously happy.
