Spring is coming!

The boys are starting to play outside again!

IMG_1846 Today, when I got home, Mark Daniel was outside playing for the first time in months.  And he didn’t even have his jacket on!  Of course he was doing what little boys typically do in the spring and fall: Climb trees!

The snow is melting fast and the rains are coming every third day or so, to help melt away all this ridiculous snow we’ve gotten this year.

Holly is not really in favor of letting the boys climb trees, because, as she says, “What if they can’t get down,” or ” What if he gets hurt while he’s coming down?”  Well, I don’t have a great response for that type of concern.  Usually, I say something condescending, like, “Well, I played like that when I was a kid too and I didn’t break any bones!.  Plus it’s hard to get too worried, because, after all it is just a small alder he’s climbing.
