Spring Is Here!

Hooray for SPRING!!! We've been having a ton of rain lately (I found out I have my cousin Jasmine to thank. Thanks, Jaz!) and the grass, well weeds for the moment, have grown quite a bit! Amber and Jade were really wild yesterday after school so I kicked them out and told them to build grass (weed) houses for their horses. After about 10min of listening to them complain about being bored, there was suddenly silence. I waited a good 1/2 hour in order to not disturb them to go check out how they were doing. They were having so much fun flattening patches of grass (weeds) for their horses. It reminded me of my childhood days playing in the tall grass (weeds) in my neighborhood. I used to love making "rooms" to lay in and stare at the blue sky in my own quiet space. And if a friend was handy, we'd bring out my trolls or ponies and build them grass houses. I told this to Amber and she looked at me like she didn't believe me at all. When I was done telling her, she said, "Mom, my imagination isn't good enough to pretend you were a kid once." Thanks, Amber. You give me such a boost of self esteem.... =)

Yes... i am very jealous. I still have snow and ice to look at and freezing air to breathe in. On the plus side, the kids did have fun sledding with David Saturday.
PS... sorry for my mood the other day. It was an emotional melt down sort of day. Probably pregnancy crap.

Hmmm, I can remember you quite vividly as a kid, it doesn't seem like very long ago! I wish it was warm enough outside here to let the kids play out.
