Barefoot in the Spring
Spring has finally made its way to Delaware! On Wednesday, Little Ish asked if he could play outside barefoot since it was so warm out. I gave the go ahead and the rest of us decide to follow suit and leave our shoes inside. Admittedly, my shoeless adventure ended quickly as I got a splinter as soon as I stepped outside. The kids, however, enjoyed soaking up the warmth from the sun baked driveway.
Lily eventually opted for shoes so she wouldn't run over her toes when she was using the rocket car. This well loved ride on toy caught Atticus's eye and Lily switched back and forth between sweetly trying to teach Atticus how to ride it and wanting to just enjoy her turn riding it. Atticus was mostly content to chase Lily around and to occasionally take a turn pushing the buttons on the front of the car.
Little Ish decided to blow bubbles much to Atticus's delight (bubble is one of Atticus's clearest words). He spent a lot of time figuring out which direction to face so that the wind wouldn't spray bubble solution back in his face.
It has been really uplifting to finally be outside without having to get everyone into extra layers. It has also made our afternoons fly by.
