AJ was sound asleep this afternoon when the kids came home from school. I wasn’t about to wake him from his nap just to spend some time outside.
Just like kids seem to have radar-hearing in my house when a movie starts playing in the basement, AJ in his deep sleep must have heard the word “park.”
He woke up, jumped out of bed in one fluid movement, and got ready to go outside faster than he’s ever gotten ready before.
Why is it that he can never move that fast for me, when we’re making a trip to Target?
It’s rare that I catch a face so silly, so fun, that it makes me chuckle every time I glance at it. This picture is not losing it’s humor for me.
Let me scroll up and peek again.
Yep, still makes me laugh.
On a more serious note, AJ was very conscientious about getting his pants dirty while playing in the dirt (at least it’s dirt now and not mud)….so he rolled his pants up. Isn’t he thoughtful?
Spring changes everything doesn’t it?
It feels like it has been years since we had afternoons as enjoyable as we’ve been having this week. Not only are the plants – the trees, the flowers, the grasses – growing again, WE are coming alive again.
Life. Joy. Activity. Growth.
These pictures speak volumes to me.
And I can’t wait to catch more of them tomorrow.
