This morning we were at the co-op for a Valentine's Day party and Presentation Day (kids share something about what they've been working on at home over the past six weeks). The sun decided to make a rare and much appreciated appearance this morning!! So we left early and headed to the park. It was GLORIOUS to say the least. Just what we needed to help shake the winter blues. We were shedding coats, digging in sand and rocks, hurling stones into the ocean and rocking those swings! I was feeling sorry for the kiddos stuck in a classroom with their noses pressed to the glass, waiting for the hours to pass so they too could enjoy this sparkling day.
Days like this one remind me how lucky I am to hang out with my kids every day, how much I love to see them playing together; how much I savor our time freedom and our flexibilty.
Yep, today's outing at the park was WAY better than any recess.
