fever fun

One morning a few days ago, Lydia woke up with a fever. We usually have breakfast outside in our "dining room", but that day, I decided to let them eat indoors. I delivered the girls' bowls, and then went back to the kitchen to get the rest. I should have known that I would find Anna busy about the work she loves best: caring for the ill. She already had Lydia propped up with pillows and covered with a warm blanket (summer is fully upon us, by the way). She was just situating her own little table when I snapped this picture. Anna was so thoroughly in her element, I wonder if deep down she wishes Lydia got sick more often. Lydia was enjoying the attention as much as one who has a fever can.
