For the past few days Ayla has woken up earlier than usual, wakes me up (often times already dressed) and insists that I get up and go downstairs with her so that she can have time to swing before getting on the bus. I love that she wants to do go outside and use her swing set. She has become a great swinger and while she’s out there, she sings. I think she enjoys some alone time outside. We are blessed to have a yard for our children to play. I am grateful.
