OH THE WEATHER!!!! I could not imagine what ideas I was going to come up with for The Weather, but it’s perfect timing! This time of year we’ve usually had decent weather for a few weeks, but not this year. We were hammered in the middle of winter, and it didn’t let up!
I love snow, but even I was sick of it! The weather changes were no good for anyone in this house, so when it felt like Spring last weekend, we took advantage of it, spending some time cleaning the yard (helloooo 4 months of dog!), raking the leaves and setting up the climber. Soon, we will paint the shed, so don’t mind that, but check out the enjoyment!
Weather can mean so much to us… as adults, it’s getting to work, getting in and out of the grocery store without getting wet, it’s being able to afford to run the a/c… but as a child, it’s the wonder of snow, jumping in muddy puddles (as Peppa Pig and my sweet Adelaide both love) and basking in the sun. Seeing Addie enjoy her beach (aka sandbox) and Millie feel the wind in her face as she took to the swing for the first time- well, that made the weather pretty great. This weather is sun glasses and sister giggles and tummy time outside!
Just a few months ago, I learned that jumping in muddy puddles is darn fun- thanks to Addie, and now I’m seeing that all weather is really pretty awesome in its own right.
