Spring is in the air. As I type this it is chilly but sunny outside, and warmer temperatures are coming next week. Once Daylight Savings comes and it stays lighter into the evening, it's a lot harder to get the kids to bed on time. Once April hits I'm ready to be without a school schedule anymore, and that last month of school is really rough! I can feel it coming already!
I'm getting on my blogging after only a few months, which seems like a miracle after my last long breaks between posts.
Birch has loved the kinetic sand he got for Christmas. He is a very tactile boy and loves playdough, sand, slime, etc. One day he made Captain Underpants from his sand and a flower petal; he did a great job...I knew immediately who it was!
I was proud of this shot I got of all 3 kids.
Roo did a great job swimming; her coaches had her swimming laps nonstop. She was exhausted after practice but always had a smile on her face and said it was fun. Eventually I signed B up for a climbing class. Isn't this a pretty sunset? I think there were actually two rainbows but I couldn't fit them both in the picture. We found this surprise when we left the Y one night.
The number 40 itself isn't bad, it's all the comes with it. Last November I could sense changes that were already starting to happen to me. Oakley's 2nd grade teacher, Martha, told me I'd better do my best to keep my body for as long as possible, because the decade between 40-50 changes things a lot. I had my first mammogram. Lots of fun things ;) But my birthday was great. To celebrate we got a bunch of our friends together and went out to Thai food. It was a lot of fun and maybe I'll just do that every year to celebrate. Plan a fun evening with friends. Next time I'll snap a photo though!
We walked on a wooden elevated walkway/bridge that jutted out giving us a beautiful view.
After church we went on a wonderful drive; Eric drove us through some beautiful neighborhoods and to the Louisville temple. Then we went to the Big 4 bridge in Louisville and walked along it.
Afterward we had lunch at a cute bistro downtown, then headed to the airport. I had such a great trip; Demri and Eric were such great hosts and I long to go back for more time there.
And I miss my moments with this little guy!
I got a text from Sash last week. "It's spring! Send me your spring photos". She sent Demri and I these:
