Boy, is today really March 26? I'm gazing out the window and I see snow! Yes, it's snowing here right now! (Nathan will be delighted as he has been talking about more snow for the past couple of weeks) Yesterday was sunny, a bit windy (enough for a kite which we flew a bit), and plenty of outside play on bikes, cars, tramps, swings, and more! I love this time of year. Today is cool. A time to stay in more. A time to clean the house and wash clothes, plan meals & grocery lists, fine tune gardening plans and of course, plan Easter! The kids are weary! We have been very busy this week. Late nights, early mornings, hmm, we are still trying to adapt to daylight savings!
Jesse was out of school yesterday. He was feeling sick. He worked so hard to reach a goal he has set for himself for this school quarter that just ended. I think the poor kid wore himself out - between school, basketball, scouts. lessons and friends! He did reach his goal - straight A's!! Hooray Jesse. I am so proud of you!
Poor little Abby has had another cold! She brings tissues to me to wipe her cute little puggy, red nose. She has the sweetest little smile. I hate seeing her under the weather! Luckily the rest of us are all well. We had the dentist look at her front tooth the other day. He told us that the front tooth and the tooth next to it was semi fused together. This is not all that uncommon and the permanent teeth will have individual roots so that will not be the case forever. Nothing serious.
Nathan pointed out his thumb to me this morning for the first time. He has a little scar tissue on it where the other side was removed when he was a baby. Nathan was born with a "double thumb tip" I told him about how his thumb was when he was a baby and how the Dr. had performed some surgery so he would have one tip instead of two. I reassured him that if the skin bothered him, the Dr. could probably do something with that too! He was satisfied and went on his merry way!
We celebrated Kolton's birthday on Tuesday. My little grandson is now 4 years old! Wow! He is a complete delight. He loves to help out right now and is a great little helper. The kids love having all the grand kids over! They never tire of each other's company. Little Jayden is getting old enough to be right there with them too! It's so cute seeing him sit up and giggle at them and of course, they love to show off and make him smile and laugh. Micah's favorite thing right now is the glider! He loves it and spends most of his time when we go out back, on the glider. We have an amazing neighborhood. No one around us has back yard fences and the kids have so much fun playing on each others yard toys. We love our neighbors and neighborhood.
Well, I am off to get started with my "chores"! Again, I am gazing out the window and the snow has stopped, the sky is still cloudy but now bright and it's just plain beautiful. I love spring!
PS Here comes the sun now!
