Butterfly Afternoons

It's one of those moments I want to bottle up.  Put it in a jar and hang around my neck, never let go.  We are all calk drawing in damp cloth on a hot summer afternoon, just got done with our second swim of the day in our little blue plastic pool.  The girls are bursting for a chance to "be butterfly."  I lay them down careful on the cement and snap a few shots.  Immediately they want to see themselves in the camera.  So full of joy their sticky yogurt fingers point at the screen.  "Again Mama!"    

How is it that I have been entrusted with so much undefined beauty? I am humbled. I am amazed.
