On Wednesday, we slathered on sun screen,wore shorts and flip flops, and killed a few mosquitoes. On Thursday, we wrapped up in winter garb and trudged through a foot of newly fallen snow. Today, Saturday, the sun is shining again and we are wearing hybrid outfits – short sleeves, sunglasses, pants, and snow boots. That’s spring in the mountains for ya!
Since the roads are clear we took the kids out for a bike ride. They both love riding bikes (it’s the first year) and I’m already envisioning all the new family adventures we can take.
M sings while she rides. Ever since she was a little tike she’s loved the sensation of riding. L is our solemn rider. He has been slow in truly appreciating the sport of cycling. But, as I watched him today I thought I could detect a ‘soul smile’ even if his little face did not carry one.
The chicken coop is being sided today. Everyone is anticipating it’s completion — including the chicks. I’m not even sure they can be called chicks anymore. Their older than tweens but not quite young adults. They are sweet girls who are looking for a bigger pad to call home.
