I Want To Remember part 11

On the eve of Spring... these are the things I'd like to remember about the exit of Winter...

- The weather never stopped us from having fun with friends... one of the foggiest days I've ever seen here, just so happened to be the day we got to play with friends after church, at one of our favorite beaches. Having those friends join us at church thought, that's even better.

- The twins have grown SO much during this season... their vocabulary is blowing up, and even though we sometimes giggle at how tough it is to understand them, we're starting to... and it's becoming fun to have conversations with them. It's also fun to watch them teach one another things... like pedaling on their tricycle.

- The ranunculus I planted, SURVIVED the great snow of 2019... using tons of blankets and boxes to protect them, worked. The bunnies started munching on them, but covering them up with a tiny, portable green house, has kept them safe. We are so excited to watch them grow and bloom... already dreaming about what our spring bouquets will look like. I also ordered and received seeds from my favorite farm here in Washington, to plant this spring.

- I came out of hibernation from photographing others, and boy does it feel good. Kicked off this season with a maternity shoot nearby... and then adventured to Seabeck with a Mama friend and her two boys... what a gorgeous place... it might be my new favorite place around here. The Olympic Mountains are just a glorious sight, mixed with the trees and water... it's the dreamiest place. Time to bring the family there to play.

- Finn has LOVED "helping" Daddy with projects around the house... or related to the guest house. His attention is held for a few minutes and then he's off again, playing dinosaurs.

- Charlotte started the program "Girls on the Run" at school again. When she saw that they were accepting registrations she begged to be a part of it again. What a wonderful, empowering program.

- Marley and Charlotte raised money for the American Heart Association... They pledged to be active for at least 60 minutes every day for 30 days... and although I didn't update their little website every day (because we ended up getting sick a lot along the way), they totally met their challenge! They were so excited to "Jump for Hearts"... and Marley learned how to jumprope for the first time, correct

- Marley received the "inclusive" award at school... the same award that Charlotte won last year. When this mama received the news, tears of joy were shed. Something right is going on here at home, and even more so, seeing how proud Charlotte was of her sister... the sweetest. We were the loudest cheering section at the award assembly. She also had her first Kindergarten performance... it was a Chinese folktale. The kids were beyond precious, the music fantastic, and it made the audience giggle... an all around wonderful show!

- March 17th marks the first day we ate outside at our table, without the use of heaters... it was a fantastic meal with fantastic company.

Pin It!
