Spring Beginnings

Longer days. New sunburns, closets cleared (or clearing), plants rooting, projects shaping, the wind shifting just enough to signal it's "next" season . . . .  flowers blooming.
And the children sprouting taller every day, right before our eyes.

These past couple of weeks have been especially chaotic. Filled to the brim with family, friends, playdates, and a two week break from our regular school routine. We made it down to the beach with Denise and the girls this past Thursday, for a quick visit my niece and a cute little shop I'll be sharing here soon -- we also managed to befriend some birds, bury some boys, collect some shells, and drop by the wetlands just before the sun dipped and the temperature dropped too cool for comfort.

The start of spring is off to a good start.
