What’s Up There?

Yesterday, we went to our neighborhood park to play for a little while before dinner. It was a beautiful evening. The air was full of springtime . . . and interesting sounds.

“Mommy, it sounds like there’s a woodpecker up there. Is that a woodpecker sound?”


Mommy didn’t know.

Spring Begins


The kids had spring break last week. We went on a 3-day trip at the tail-end of the break, but earlier in the week, we spent one gorgeous afternoon at our neighborhood park.

I’m amazed at how kids can create these beautiful hours of fun for themselves with sticks to dig in the dirt, pebbles to kick, and dandelions to hunt and pull. Swings and slides help too. Oh, and bare feet! Bliss.

This is how spring starts.

Take a look . . .
