Look at those speedy little legs! I call this new sport: "Barefoot Golf-ball Soccer" Best played barefoot (obviously!) in the Spring.
It was quite windy today, as you might be able to tell from Olivia's pigtails, and was also in the mid seventies.
The really weird thing about all this is that we are supposed to get a snow storm tomorrow evening!!!
(That's strange, right?)
What do you suppose THIS is? Could it be a sign that Spring really is on it's way???
My first-borndest son discovered this sunny yellow face peeking out of a crack in the driveway, even though we are due for more snow, and the bee's haven't yet appeared. Isn't that the way with Dandelions?! I think there might be a sermon in that... Hmmm.
I had a hard time getting the boys to let me take these pictures because they no sooner found them and wanted to EAT them!
Boys: "Mom, can we EAT these dandelion flowers?"
Me: "Uh..., okay." (What else could I say? Those things are actually quite good for you!) "Please don't let Olie see you eat them!" I added after it was too late.
Zachary is sure that anything growing out of God's good earth, and considered edible, is a delicacy! I try to remind him that "edible" does not mean the same thing as "tasty".
He doesn't know what I'm talking about, but Clayton got the point. I overheard him telling Daddy "We ate Dandelions - and they tasted TERRIBLE!" (I did catch him spewing pieces over the edge of the hill in disgust) and while I could have told him before-hand this little bit of information, sometimes (or mostly) these lessons are better learned through experience - after all, how could I know what Dandelions taste like?!! :-)
When I thought of being a mom, I never dreamed of THIS! ~Five heart melting smiles ~never getting tired of midnight feedings ~having all the answers ~not minding dirty faces ~enjoying watching the boys eat! ~falling in love with pigtails ~appreciating overalls ~appreciating a washing machine! ~wanting to do everything better ~falling in love a million times
