I woke up expecting clouds and got sun.
That is always a happy surprise.
Since there are supposed to be snow showers at some point this week, I decided to force the kids to play outside. Keith is such a homebody, and doesn't even like to go outside, but I made him and I think he eventually liked it.
I learned something, though.
While I was inside, the kids wanted to be with me. They didn't necessarily want to be in the same room, but they wanted to be inside with me. So I decided to take the laundry to be folded outside.
And they went outside! And they stayed outside. I had to make a few trips in to put away clothes, or get another basket, and they followed me in. And then I went back out, and they followed me out.
I feel like a broken record, but it is true, it was absolutely dreamy to sit there and listen to my kids laughing and playing around me while I folded the clothes, basking in the warmth of the sun and the coolness of the air. I may have gotten a little sun, even.
Unfortunately, my phone is having problems transferring photos to my computer, so this post is going to be short. More later, yeah?
