Spring Has Sprung!

What a relief it has been to be able to spend sometime outdoors these past couple of days. At the beginning of the week I was unsure if we would be able to get out because of the forecast of rain. Thankfully it has held off and we have been able to spend most afternoons outside.
It's amazing how much the kids have grown over winter. Lucy and Simon can now peddle the bike. Ian is a sturdy walker and no longer eating grass, rocks , or what ever else he finds out there. I can sit in a chair and just watch them play.
It's like our neighborhood has come out of hibernation. We chatted over the fence with our neighbors today while they were grilling out. I went into town for something and saw couples strolling hand and hand down the sidewalk.
I'm sure there's a chance that winter could cycle back around but I'm thankful for the break.

Monday we have a parent teacher conference. I'm looking forward to finalizing plans for next year. Right now I'm trying to record Lucy reading her sentences or a book to show to her teachers. I need to find some way to hide the camera. She's more interested in putting on show then reading.

Mandy, try to bribe her with something! that works with Aidan. I tell him if he reads he can watch Sesame Street and he'll perform for the camera.

Oh, I forgot that Aidan also likes to watch the movies back. Maybe Lucy will like that too and it will motivate her to cooperate.
