News Flash -- it has been a long, COLD winter and it doesn't take long to find out people are just about sick of being cooped up inside (us included). I wouldn't mind winter if it wasn't SO cold, talking negative wind chills for days on end. Solon has come to hate snow because he thinks it accompanies nasty, windy cold weather. We did have not one but two nice days in February. Day one I was not up to being outside but day 2 we spent a good chunk of our day outside after preschool and before and after rest time. The kids were easily entertained with minimal toys and lots of imagination, it is funny how going outdoors does that to children! I was happy to watch and observe and soak in some much-needed Vitamin D!
We are hoping the sunny, warmer weather predicted comes to fruition so we can spend more time walking to get the mail, taking trips around the block and venture to the neighborhood parks and finally socialize with all of our new neighbors. There is no shortage of kiddos to play with now - yippee!
