It's March 18th and seems to be that time of year already! The kids are running barefoot, shirts off through the yard...sweating! It's PONYTAIL day! That means it's a day not to worry about what I look like... throw my hair back in a ponytail, get outside with my kids and ...ENJOY!
First order of business is to put on my first pair of shorts of the season! Next, I put water in the water table and it isn't long before they are ready for... THE PLASTIC POOL....as I drag it out and get the soap and water for the boys to help me give it a good cleaning...I wonder...How many more years will I get to do this???....the plastic pool that is. We've filled it up with cold (and warm) water and Eli is now splashing around and Nate has put himself in charge of keeping the water topped off with the garden hose. Such simple pleasures......such RICH MOMENTS to soak up.
Thank you, Jesus for plastic pools and boys who still fit in them....for happy children...big smiles...mud puddles ..lots of giggles...green grass and blooming trees for a backdrop....warm sun on my shoulders...slight breeze...."ponytail days."
