Sometimes we think about getting a bigger home. A home with a bigger back yard and three bedrooms so Luca and Andre don't have to share a room as they get older.
But then I think about my grandparent's summer home, which was the world to me for 3 precious months every year during my childhood. I visited the house as an adult and realized how small and simple it was. But that is unimportant to a child. What made it amazing was the endless supply of toys, the freedom to run around, the pool!
The other day Alain and I inflated a little pool in the backyard (with our own lung power) and warmed it up by carrying pots of warm water from the kitchen. Luca and Andre enjoyed it so much. They might wonder at how small our home is if they visit it years from now. But today, I think they feel it's just right.
