More and more lately, the kids are staying out for awhile after the school bus drops them off — not for hours, but it's still an encouraging sign.
It's getting to be the time of year when we don't mind them taking snow off the pile and spreading it onto the driveway or road because as the sun becomes stronger the snow begins to melt away, even though the temperatures are still not exactly soaring.
As I said, the temperatures aren't soaring, so if Sue wants to keep a close eye on them, she huddles in the closed-in porch under a heavy coat.
It's got nothing to do with the rest of the post, but here's a stray picture of me and the boy on his sleepover two weekends ago. I am currently using it as my buddy icon on Facebook.
