When I think of today I seeing myself at dusk chasing Jack to the creek. I couldn't help but laugh the entire time, with him laughing too. It's like one of those moments in a movie where everything slows down and you're chasing a giggling child through a field and everything else is blurry.
We were playing tag and I was it. I couldn't catch him and I was running as fast as I could.
After we caught our breath, we looked up at the sky. The stars were just staring to come out and we counted them.
Before tag we were clearing our land of any trash that had blown in over the winter. Since the snow has melted we've found quite a bit of stuff.
Later we laid in the grass and I pointed out bird nests in the trees. Since there are no leaves they're much easier to find. Soon the woods will be thick again.
We're excited Spring is here. Our avocado trees have sprouted roots and I've been saving all of our paper egg cartons over the winter. Soon we'll be able to start our seeds.
Oh, I almost forgot, Jude woke up half naked today. Ha! I went in his room to see if he was awake because I hadn't heard anything yet and it was almost 9-am. His room was cozy with an electric heater blowing on his dresser, and when I looked over the rails, I saw his tiny baby bum.
He is so sweet. I left him there to sleep, and he didn't wake for another hour.
