We did a string of fun things while the girls were off of school last week... it was nice to stay busy while we waited for the weather to finally get warm!
A day in Westford while Alasdair taught in RI, and celebrating all the April birthdays.
A few days at the Cape with the McFarlands in a sweet little house near the beach.
Spring break in New England-- winter coats at the the beach!
early morning reading
Audrey wrote these sweet notes
Just one little ER visit, but no glue or stitches
This is what happy hour looks like when you travel with little kids!
Back home, and desperate for vitamin D, I was determined to drink my morning coffee on the deck.
By the end of the week, spring arrived.
who needs a fancy vacation when you can fly a shopping bag kite in the parking lot?!
a fun little hike and dinner with friends... the only picture I have is the girls enthralled by legos (or maybe by Austin;)
I took the girls to a riding lesson -- I think this was the highlight of all of our week! A perfect day, their first time around horses, and a sweet time together. In one of my alternative lives, we'd live somewhere like this and own horses!
Sunday afternoon picnic lunch on Balch Hill with friends, and then gelato.
I'm trying to hold on to these happy sunny memories now that the weather is grey and rainy again, and we are stuck home with tummy bug germs and missing lots of fun things this week!
(You know it's been a rough stretch when you call the school and the secretary, recognizes your number and answers the phone, "don't tell me she's sick again?!")
