Feelin' like spring...

This afternoon was just what I needed.

A little background? Our house has been on the market for a week. We've been fortunate and had quite a few showings, and have been working to keep the house as meticulously clean as possible. Add in the rain/wind/cold that have been generally yucky. Then add the fact that it's the week before spring break and my students think that vacation has come early. Oh - and add in the fact that our small child has decided to stop sleeping at night. Not terrible, but just feeling a little, um, oppressed? Repressed? Just pressed?

But then the sun came out. And it was good.

The boys and I met some friends at the park for an hour. And in that hour my good senses were restored. The air was fresh, sky was blue and.......no COATS!!! Amazing. What a sense of freedom! Was totally in love with the moment.

Nothing more than an hour at the park in the sun. But it made all right in the world.

Oh, that last photo made my heart melt. They are so cute, and so different, but so similar!! Although I'd love for my next one to be a girl, after seeing your boys...another boy wouldn't be the end of the world.... :)

I think we all felt a little like that! It is amazing what a little sun and warmth can do for the soul and yet I wonder if we would get the same high if we had it all the time. It makes my heart sing to see new pictures of my boys. Thank you!
