Ready for Spring

Well, it looks like all indicators point to the fact that we are ready for spring, despite our love for the snow. Normally I get bummed when the snow starts to melt, but now I've set my mind to warmer weather, and we have all been embracing activities that go along with the weather change.

Case in point, N has been ready to start playing some baseball. He was outside playing with his bat in the snow and I think it may be time to dust off the baseball gloves and baseballs, though I think he'll still be in t-ball. Not sure what is going on with that, but we'll see. He's been doing t-ball for the past two seasons, and I'm not sure at what age he goes into baseball. I don't recall playing little league until the 5th grade, so if that is any indication, he's a ways off.

It's been a pretty fruitful Winter in terms of snow, and there is still plenty of it on the ground. We are going to have a miserable mud season, but don't get me started. R was itching to start hanging laundry outside on our line, and even though it was cool, it was breezy, and by noon the temps were above freezing, so the sheets dried just fine. R and A wanted to go for a power walk, and since N and I don't partake in these endeavors, we went to the rec center and tried to play tennis.

The court is still covered in snow, but we hit the ball back and forth in the parking lot and it dawned on me that this was a great way for him to tone up his hand eye coordination. Forget about getting it over the net, just connect with the darn ball.

After tennis, we actually got home after R and A, and they were busy making omelets for supper. Not just any sort of omelet, but gourmet omelets with ham, mushrooms, pepperoni, grilled onions and peppers, and cheese. Amazing stuff, we literally chowed down.

What a nice day we had, a prelude to Spring and warmer weather. Of course, we're supposed to get 18 inches of snow, but that's just a formality at this point.

Until the next time, thanks for reading.
