What a breath of fresh air the weather here today is! I think this is the point during Winter at which the kids and I start feeling a little cooped up and start getting anxious for Spring. So when I heard the forecast for today, I determined to make the most of the warm(er) weather. This morning when I told Abel and Amariah that we were going to take a walk after lunch, their little faces lit up, and they practically ran for the table, anxious to get eating out of the way. As we walked around the neighborhood hand in hand, Abel couldn’t stop talking about our surroundings for even a moment, and Amariah pulled Abel and I along as she sped from slushy pile to slushy pile.
When we got back to our yard, Abel and Amariah, excited to play outside, started retrieving all of their outdoor toys from the garage. The funny thing about that was that none of their outdoor toys are Winter toys. So here’s Abel riding a tricycle in snow boots (a frustrating effort he gave up rather quickly) and little Amariah carrying around sand buckets and whoofle balls. But whatever the toys, we were all just glad to be getting a little sunshine and fresh air!
And now that we’ve had some of that, I think it’s time for a little nap!
