I finally went out and bought them a smaller board, since they had been using my wall chalkboard, which is enormous.
As much as I dislike the time change I do like that Summer seems closer as the days get longer. The daffodils that Aspen and I planted in the yard are peeping through, as well as my irises and hyacinths. We've had some 60+ degree days as well, so that makes me happy!! We spent Saturday in the yard and it felt great to get a head start on all the things we want to do in the front and backyards.
I've been trying to get my bu_t out the door lately for some morning runs, and boy does it feel good when it happens! I love Spring! And I can't wait for Easter.
Oakley's latest words are amen, hello, moooo, shoe and cheese. And also shhhhhh, from one of his Peek-aboo books. He does this weird thing with his eyes where he puts his head down but looks up at you with his eyes like he's plotting something evil that you don't know about. He also won't make eye contact with you when he knows you're watching him. He'll turn his head away from you and then slowly turn it back toward you, with his eyes on you. Sometimes that kid scares me :)
I got the game Sequence for my birthday and I love it! It's a fun game that Eric and I can play together. I also got an ice cream maker and made my first batch of strawberry ice cream the other day. Wow, this is a very journal-esque post! Happy Spring!-ish.
