The weather has been gorgeous this week! Sunny and 60's. Lots of walks, picnics and parks. I am just the tag-a-long because Zach no longer wants to ride, but insists on pulling his sister everywhere. Also, only they share the thrill of dropping leaves into a stream, I seem to have lost that drive. Having a sibling is a wonderful thing!
On a side note, in a room full of my colleagues I was once asked by this sweet college student (innocent enough) what in the world I was going to do all day staying home and not teaching. Taken back by her question, I can remember quickly scanning my 23 year old brain for important sounding things I would accomplish once I was "home". Shame crept up my neck and face as I said something about how much time running errands and actually caring for the baby would take...but now, 2 kids later I am more certain, more centered and grateful for this opportunity. I guess I would just tell her, "Well... today, we spent 1 whole hour standing on a little bridge!"
