Man…the weather turns nice and I totally disappear from the blog-o-sphere! I lurk early in the morning, reading blogs and always promising myself I’ll write one. I have a lot to tell you because a lot’s been going on. The wretched winter and the non-existent spring kidnapped my writing discipline. Give me some warm weather and I’m a college student on spring break. I lose all focus. I mean, it’s sunny, I have a bike, I have legs, I have grandkids full of energy…
However…the intoxication of warmth is becoming the norm, so I promise to be around a bit more. Thanks, as always, for sticking with me.
Thought I’d share a photo diary of what I’ve been up to.
There was Luca’s 2nd birthday
Hanging out with Cooper
Biking with Claire
Playing with Mae-Moo
Helping potty train the Luca Duke
Sliding and swinging with Luca and Claire.
I still love to slide down a big old metal slide. I’m also teaching Claire to swing. You know how many muscles it takes to swing? Pull back with your arms, stretch your legs out going up and back going down, repeat for 10 minutes. Takes some calf and ab strength, I tell you what. We found an old school slide the other day. The metal kind with steep stairs and hardly any guide rail. The three of us climbed up the stairs and slid down without falling on our butts at least 20 times. I had to bribe them with bubbles (“Let’s go blow bubbles at Grammy’s!!”) to get them to stop.
I’ve been hiking and biking alone, too.
Not a sign you want to see going up the grade on a steep hill
I hope this finds you enjoying your spring, too. I wish you the joy of a slide and a good swing. I’ll be in touch soon. Promise 🙂
