Sensory Overload

Okay, this is just phenomenal! Not only has it been T-shirt weather outside, but all the snow has melted, the birds and wildlife are out rubbing the sleep from their eyes, and my windows have been left open for days and nights on end. Rich remarked how much happier his girls have all seemed since the warm weather moved in, and I agree. We are all feeling the sunny lovin. 

I heard someone blaring their car radio while they worked on their garage. I saw young boys learning how to do ollies on their skateboards. I felt the heat of the sun on my bare arms. I smelled ... well, I smelled the dog poo smell that comes with the thaw. I watched chickadees forage for nest-building supplies and food on our lawn.

I sent Abby out to ride her bike with the neighbourhood kids before lunchtime. Skylar asked to be let out back and stayed there the whole afternoon long. I gave Hailey and Robin their first pairs of walking shoes to wear outside.

Abby told me several times how excited she was for springtime.

"Mama," she said. "I don't want winter to come again, not for a long time."
