It's been almost 20 days since I last posted, and not for want of something to write. It's just busy. I'm tired of busy. Spring is always like this, with soccer (times two now), gymnastics, WORK, and this pressure to be outside ENJOYING it all. Although I do, enjoy it that is.
We've just about out of firewood season, which is nice and sad all at once. I love sitting in our little back room, all snugly with a fire and kids and David and beagle. But I'm also fine with the sun setting closer to 7:30 now and getting a bit more out of each day - and the warmth and flowers are overwhelmingly pretty right now! I could do without the yellow haze over my entire car, though. I do not remember a prettier spring - we've had spring weather instead of that weather where it turns from cold to hot overnight. We have chilly mornings, warm afternoons, and chilly evenings. Perfect.
Here is a little bit of our spring...
