this week, it's spring!

before dinner last night i checked the weather.
and what i found made my bitterness over the recent time change melt away:


see that? looks like spring to me! nearly all of our snow melted yesterday!
it's possible that we could see another bit of winter.
but this week?
this week is spring.
and we are totally excited to get outside and play!

these photos are from last spring:

elijah's grown out of that shirt, the shoes and the funny little skinny jeans.
he hasn't grown out of that face when i take his picture.
what a cutie!

i can't wait to take new pictures, make new memories and celebrate this season with my family.
looking forward to fresh air, room to run and things to climb-that are not my furniture.
i wonder, what elijah will love most about the parks this year?
last year it was stick collecting.

cheers to a week of warm days, long walks and a happy boy.
praise to the lord,
who provides the sun. right on time.

enjoy your tuesday. make it great!

      kim, this kid is hilarious in skinny pants. on the hunt for another pair. this time we'll buy them on purpose. last year they were just a sweet deal. put them on him and laughed my head off. they made especially funny as he grew taller. skinny capris. lol
