And although it is threatening to snow this weekend, the girls and I have all sported our spring outerwear the last several days. The flip flops have returned, and Hadley and Harper have new "water shoes." This year, they're sporting glittery princess and Hello Kitty shoes for the pool and beach (they're currently wearing them with socks - super cool).
With the warmer weather, the girls and I have been able to get out a lot more. It's much easier to get outside when you don't have to bundle up.
The other thing we've been doing lately is going to the library and filling up the girls backpacks with books, then going across the street to Starbucks to read and maybe color a bit.
I like the company of Hadley and Harper. I like who they are, and who they are becoming. Motherhood sometimes gets clouded by tasks like making sure they've brushed their teeth, or that they aren't hitting one another and I don't get to appreciate their company all the time. I think I accept that. I know these things are a part of the ballgame. It's just nice to be in their presence without having to do much besides hang out with them.
Hooray for a new season!
