February 4, 2008

Wow, what a beautiful spring-like day we are having here in Oklahoma today. It is currently about 74 degrees and still climbing, the sky is crystal-clear blue and the sun is shining brightly. The boys and I spent the entire morning outside. As soon as we finished breakfast, we headed outdoors and we did not come back in until almost noon. We even ate our snack outside today. It was wonderful and the boys really enjoyed it.

I got such a kick out of them, watching them run a little ways down this small hill in our side yard and then fall down and roll. They thought that was such a fun game. I sat there watching them, with a smile on my face, remembering last year around this time when they did not want to touch the grass and could not really even walk in it without falling down. What a difference a year makes. We are going to have such a fun spring and summer this year. A day like today really gets you ready for it.

The boys were both filthy dirty when we finally game in doors and they both had sand in their shoes. Now that is a testament to a good day outside, for a little boy. I enjoyed watching them get dirty:). Nick spent much of the time collecting acorns and sticks and then breaking the sticks in two.

They seemed so cranky after we came inside that I really thought they would go down for their nap easily today. NOT. We ate lunch and they played for a few minutes and then it was time to go upstairs. It took them over an hour to finally quit playing and settle down and go to sleep and it seems like this is becoming the norm lately. I am really getting to the point where I think we are going to have to move one of them to the other room. I have a feeling they will not like that too much though.

Tomorrow morning we take Ben back to the hospital to have his stitches taken out. We also have to vote. It is suppose to turn cold again soon but I'm not sure exactly when. I don't want to think about it because I am enjoying this spring weather too much.
