14:52 At Play

I can't get my kids to come inside.  First thing in the morning, they're out riding bikes (yes, before school).  They drop their backpacks in the garage and go play the minute they get home from school.  And I've taken to sunblocking the pre-schoolers because they spend more time outside than in during the day.

You just can't beat outdoor-living weather.  It's one of the reasons I am so thankful I live in Arizona.

I love spring.  It means I will soon be leaving my doors wide open and fresh air will blow through the house.  It means later daylight hours. It means less socks, no boots and hats, and a smaller laundry pile.  It means the kids take their play outside, leaving me some peace and quiet inside.

And since their play is outside, it means less housework for me in.  Meaning more time for me to play too.  Somehow it seems easier to bake, sew, and craft in the spring when the kids are out of the house.  I guess it's kind of silly of me to be inside baking on such beautiful days, rather than save that for winter days when there's nothing else to do anyway, but I guess that's how it is around here.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to play with fabric and my staple gun.
Anita will further entertain you with her interpretation of play.
