This is my first daffodil of this spring. It looks so cheerful in my front yard and I love it. I can’t wait for the rest of them to bloom and for the red tulips to follow.
Today we had Jake and Brielle to play, and we had fun playing at the park and getting all of the toys and bikes and scooters out of the garage. We played hopscotch and the boys raced up and down the sidewalk.
Brandon is enjoying his stint as VIP in his class. That button does not leave his shirt until seconds before bedtime. His duties have included holding open the door, marking the tally (how many days of school they’ve had), being a messenger, etc. Very Important stuff like that.
So we played outside most of the day, ran some errands, hung out with my mom and ate some rice krispie treats and got home in time to whip up some homemade green waffles (our little St. Patrick’s Day tradition). We also made green cookies. And raided our closets for anything green to wear. No pinchies for us!
Then it was off to Jaden’s basketball game! Ahhh, it’s kind of a strange feeling to walk through the halls of your old high school while holding your kids’ hands. Makes you feel old and sort of like all of those years were part of some strange dream, because it’s hard to imagine that life didn’t always used to be the way it is NOW. Know what I mean?
Look at those sweet moves. It was fun to watch the guys play and to chat with cute wives of teammates and watch all of our kids frolic in the same gym where I used to cheer Jaden on 12 years ago……not as a cheerleader, mind you, but decked out in orange and black just the same. Brandon LOVED watching his dad play, and loved shooting hoops during time-outs and half time. And drinking all of Jaden’s water.
Anyway, I really do feel like a lucky gal today. Lucky to have all that I have, especially my husband and kids and family. Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
