A foot of snow outside today; spring is on hold.
Meanwhile, the mice are busy creating a rooftop garden inside inspired by a cousin’s new home in Chicago!
There is a march happening in their bedroom!
Little hands learning to play with little things . . .
For the past few Easters I have make a tiny egg hunt for the mice and all the other little creatures that live in our house. And I realized this year that this mini hunt has become a beloved tradition for the girls. I try to pay attention to these things: the things they remember, the things they tell stories about, and especially the things they describe to Wallace. He takes it all in with such wonder and joy.
Wallace, surrounded by his cousins, at Gousty.
Soaking up the little things with the little one this week, while his sisters are away.
They could have stayed in the greenhouse all afternoon!
And here are the big girls, planting onion seeds just a few days earlier . . .
Could you mix me up
a custom brew,
I could use
a little boost
as we approach
of creative children
bits and pieces
I can help clean
Gotta love those baby dreadlocks!
A special gift for a special sloth-loving friend!
