A weekend without anyone sick? Oh, it has been so long it feels downright odd to be outside, wandering, doing, going places. And everything seems always seems so bright and raw those first few weeks of March anyway, as the sun shines and the winds blow and the ground is once again revealed.
It is still really cold but there has been enough to melt a lot of the snow, and some bare earth combined with sunshine, even if cold, is a treat. The boys have been out out out, running, climbing, playing. It almost feels like...dare I say it...spring is coming?
It seems that we are finally easing back into a groove. It was such a crazy almost two months there that it seems unfamiliar to have normal days, to just play and read and work on projects. But we are figuring it out, slowly but surely. The boys are back to their full tilt energy again - and I love the loud sprinting nerf battles, hide and seek, and silly games going on.
This week we have some warmth coming (40's! 50's!) and it might be sunny and dry a few days before the spring rains come. We can't wait - walks, playing, exploring. Ahhh. Just what we all need, I think.
