Joyful Weather

As always with the first taste of Spring we find ourselves outside, constantly! Every evening the children walk in the door covered from head to toe in wonderful dirt, chalk powder and sticky bubble soap residue. My filthy kids are actually making my heart sing during a time when my heart aches on so many other levels. Their innocent, free play is a wonder to behold.

After being cooped up all winter long the children are free to be loud and to run, wherever. The bickering of late winter disappears as play together or apart, as the heart leads them. And, when it is time for bed they are tired and worn out...though still thinking of new plans for tomorrow.

Soccer games started on Sunday for Mary. Their team played the toughest team in the league to a 3-3 tie. Mary scored a team-high 2 goals in the game. The most she has ever scored in one game. Shortly Katie and Emily will be playing on Saturdays too. Just call us weekend soccer warriors.

Katie went to her first Daisy Scouts meeting last night, and really enjoyed it. She was pretty nervous since she didn't know anyone, but soon settled in. Mary also had her Brownie meeting last night and is loving Girl Scouts so far. It has been nice having this shortened introduction for both of them. In the fall they will be assigned to permanent troops, one of which I will be the leader for.

And, today we are going to try again to go to the Marble Museum. Hopefully, there won't be quite so many school groups in the middle of the week.

Peace.

Amy

I hope your warm weather held better than ours! Though if I were tough and smart I would be out digging and fertilizing right now. (Only maybe you aren't supposed to dig clay soil in the rain? I lived in Florida too long & will never get the hang of gardening here.) I can hardly wait until it is warm enough to play outside.
I read your Feb 23 post & just wanted to say that you aren't alone in thinking that the economic downturn might have a good side. I have always been shocked when I read about the percentage of the world's resources that our country consumes.
Has Mary been to Camp Henry? Our church may offer Travis a scholarship & I am torn between wanting him to have the opportunity and worrying that he will somehow get himself hurt (I know he is ten, but he is still my little boy!).
I hope we will see you guys this summer!

When I initially left a comment I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are
added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.
Perhaps there is a means you can remove me from that service?
Thank you!
