It is currently almost 60 degrees outside. In Utah. In February. Which makes me very happy, even if there are storm clouds rolling in. At 60 degrees it is way too warm to snow. To celebrate, we had our first trip to the park. No jackets needed.
While there, I realized that Clara is almost three. Which means no more hovering around the jungle gym. She can play. Which means I could like, take a book to the park while the kids play and stuff. Holy cow. Freedom is attacking me on all sides. Or close to it.
I also realized that knowing everyone in the world has its advantages. For example, yesterday I got to go to lunch with Melissa because she graced me with her presence. And then today I was at the park at the same time as Melissa so we went on a walk about while the kids ran to the bridge and back. So basically, I get to have playtime with my friends, too, when I go to the park. I love my neighborhood. Really every day it gets better.
Then we came home and I got to see Keysha for the first time in a week. It's unsettling when people are out of town. It affects the balance of the neighborhood too much.
We had a very busy and fun weekend. Friday night the Crazy Comptons came over while their mom and dad had a hot date. Then Saturday I planted some starts in my little greenhouse pod, we went to lunch at Ama and Papa's house, and worked on some projects. Sunday I taught Relief Society and then we had friends over for dinner and the Academy Awards. Last night the Suds came over for Family Night. Tonight I am going to bed early, hopeing that Spring is just around the corner!
