A Breath of Fresh Air
And that's exactly what we have needed after big snowstorms and lots of melting snow. Warmer temps and the possibility of getting outside to play.
Yesterday and today the boys spent hours outside ... just playing in the backyard. They didn't tire of being back there - it felt so fun after many many days inside! Swinging, running, basketball, and going down the slide was re-discovered and the big smiles and laughter that kept floating inside was keeping me smiling.
While Eli played outside with the boys this morning I got house cleaning and laundry in swing before heading to a quick appointment at work. And then the bigger boys worked to help him clean up the yard later on.
I know that winter isn't over yet. But we had been having epic Nerf battles what felt like an hourly basis in this house. Mommy has been shot enough times this last week, and helped mediate quite a few injuries from others shooting too close. I was ready to let the energy be run outside the house. They just needed to run = )
