We're gearing up to a long weekend together to celebrate new life and renewed faith (in lots of things!). We'll begin with a visit to a farm tomorrow to check out baby animals. Animals are my girls' homies right now: all stripes, feathers, you name it, they love it and can make the animal call. We'll be eating with family, preparing food, spending time outside, and splashing in puddles, no doubt.
It never ceases to amaze me: the draw a kid feels to jump in a puddle. Their amazement as rubber boots permeate water. The giddy grin in the aftermath. The feeling like perhaps they are not supposed to get soaking wet and dirty, but they cannot resist. Now that is a prime example of being completely present, mindful and at one with nature.
Outside is muddy, slushy, wet and still kind of grey without any foliage or greenery. So, tulips needed to go on our table.
