After having the summer off it has been challenging for Penny and Oliver to adjust to my full-time work schedule. Sometimes I merely see the shadow of their feet outside my door as they quietly contemplate whether to come in or not. Sometimes I hear a tentative knock, listening for the all clear to enter. And sometimes they barge in with peels of laughter. Today was such a day, with the addition of boxes being dragged in behind them. I turned my immediate reaction of annoyance into one of acceptance and decided to enjoy this moment with them. It was all said and done in a matter of minutes but this photo will make that moment last forever. I’m so glad they decided to barge into my office today.
