Hello, there! Just poppin' in from living outside the last few days!
We are praising God for this unexpected gift of 60 - 75 degree weather in the middle of MARCH! This never happens in good ol' Wisconsin, let me tell you!!!
|No this is not another daughter I've been hiding -- this is Lauren, a girl I babysit. :)|
This has been so good for me... several days of hanging out with my girls, letting the to-do lists slide as much as possible, being refreshed by the opportunities of outdoor activities that we miss during the winter.
I need to be better at going outside even when it is cold, wet, and snowy.... I'm thinking about reading the book 15 Minutes Outside: 365 Ways to Get Out of the House and Connect with Your Kids by Rebecca Cohen. I need some inspiration for those winter blahs that keep me holed inside like a hermit! Oh, and I'm also one of those people that isn't warm unless it is AT LEAST 65 degrees and sunny -- 85 is even better. :) But enough about winter, because it is clearly spring right now!!!
The children had fun introducing Selah to the park. She loved the swing...
tasted a few wood chips (don't worry -- I'm SURE they're organic)...
and discovered sand. Much to my dismay, she got a mouthful or two in...taking after her big sister Cassie!
Oh, how we've missed the fun and convenience of the park a block from our house. The kids never seem to tire of it no matter how often we go during the summer months.
How have you been enjoying this gorgeous weather???
