Early spring

February turned out to be a very mild month here in cental Kansas. We enjoyed many days in the 60's and the boys loved spending more time outside. With all the extra time outside I was reminded of the Lord's wonderful plan in creating seasons. Although I generally dislike winter- it is a great time to do things indoors. Not just extra projects like sewing or painting. But regular stuff like laundry and dishes. It is not hard to be motivated to work indoors when it is 15* outside. :) However, with beautiful weather outside, do you know how hard it is to motivate a 3 year old to do the dishes? (Not to mention his mom!:) I suddenly remembered that during the summer I find it hard to acomplish ANYTHING inside! And if not for those days that the temps reach 100* and we hide in the air conditioning, we would probaby have no clean clothes or healthy food all summer long.
So while I eagerly await the warmer months and green grass and flowers, I am blessed again with a lesson in contentment as we still spend many days indoors. Indoors working, playing and learning- "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:...
And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God." Ecc. 3:1+13 Marucs enjoys petting the neighbor's cat
"Some back kitty!"

"I am ready Dad!"

How fun!! IT's hillarious how our boys do things so close together!!! Just this morning Justice and I were playing 'baseball' and he was doing pretty well hitting the ball!! He was also making up stuff as we went....
"mom, when you throw the ball, then people say, "MASH< MASH! because then I go like this and MASH the ball!! SO thats what it is called...."
SO HYSTERICAL becuase he's never seen baseball on tv or anything... but was creating a whole game in his head!!!
Can't wait till our boys can play 'mash' together!!!
