Mommy Catches A Glimpse of Spring

Yesterday morning I had the girls start working on a 550-piece puzzle.  I knew they could do it, if they could just be patient enough.  Sara is not very patient, she expects things to be easy and to be done right the first time.  Rebecca can see the challenge in the activity, and while she may get a bit frustrated, she usually sticks with it.  Well, no temper tantrums ensued (whew!), and with some help from Daddy & Mommy the puzzle was completed this morning!  VICTORY!  The girls were very pleased with themselves.

When we arrived home from church today, Michael was outside working in the yard.  It was an absolutely lovely afternoon!  The sun was shining, the sky was clear and blue, tulips and daffodils were beginning to bloom - it's beginning to look like Spring around here!

In a matter of minutes, all 3 kids were outside enjoying the weather.  Rebecca chose to practice roller skating while Sara amused herself by pulling Matthew around in the wagon.  I enjoyed watching them because it was one of those rare moments where they were all happy and interacting peacefully with one another.

 Happy Kids

It was Matthew's first time in the wagon and he loved it.  He is starting that sad but wonderful transition from babyhood into toddler-hood.  He loves his big sisters and he is already showing signs of wanting to do the same things that they can do.  When he is with them, his eyes light up and he gives you a look that says, "Do you see me, Mommy?  I'm playing with my sisters.  I'm a big boy!"
