It's warm enough to hold our sweaters!

Hello, April.
Please keep us healthy and relatively stress-free.
Be good to us.

This girl loves the beach. and her grammy and grampy.
We are making it a tradition to get a beach house for her birthday every year,
because it just so happens that it falls on spring break and everyone we know are teachers.
And, when you only have one child, you really let everyone know it.

BITS OF SUNDAY.







This weekend was a good one.
I haven't had time in the last 5 weeks to relax, 
so it is a wonderful thing to feel accomplished enough to just be.

Today, Sunday, we went to the soaking pool, grabbed pizza on our way home, baked a peach pie, 
went for a rainy walk around the neighborhood looking at all the new sprouts and blossoms 
and collecting things for vases, 
and then we ate that pie for dinner.

It was a wonderful day.

We were stuck in traffic yesterday 
and she saw a bunch of litter next to an over-turned shopping cart.
She started saying how litter is bad for the soil, the earth, 
and "maybe even little fish get stuck in bottles!"
then her train of thought went on... "sting rays should use their tails 
to poke a hole in the bottle, but not too hard to hurt the fish, 
just to make a hole for it to escape."

I love watching her mind at work.

This was during a ballerina/wookie/comedy show you were putting on for me.
Please never choose just one thing to love.

I've never thought she looked more like me than I do right now.
