We are back to school, yes, but the late Easter break means suddenly we are facing the end of the school year, and I watch as the children shake off and leave behind the last of their winter mantles and run full pelt towards the sun.
Easter was abundantly chocolatey, and full of egg hunts and lazy pajama days.
The blossom is early on all the trees!
And the sun hardly faltered once. So much so that no sooner were they in to eat, than they were gone again, my kitchen echoing with their departing cries and dashing footsteps away into the sunlit garden.
We took a few days trips, but in the end, not as many as we had planned. Somehow, once the sun came it was hard to want to go anywhere.
We have had two full weeks of astounding sunsets. How is it possible to not tire of this?
If you'd like to see, do please take a peek over on my blog A Year At My Backdoor.
And we had a birthday. A rather important Fifteenth Birthday!!
Yes, our Eldest is now fifteen. It seems rather unbelievable actually!!
And though today is back to the slightly cooler weather more normal for this time of year,
still, we are on the right side of Spring now, headed in the right direction, aren't we?
Here's to the days of summer that are rolling in on the tide.
